Longform, which is sponsored by the writing program at the University of Pittsburgh, connects readers to new and classic non-fiction from around the web. The site gathers non-fiction articles that are longer than 2,000 words (i.e. long form journalism) and lists them on the homepage. Four or five articles are added every day, making for a virtual cornucopia of in-depth reading. The site provides a simple but effective search engine, as well as a "read later" function, where readers may save articles to read later using Readability, Instapaper, Pocket, or Kindle. The editors have also created an app that is available for both Android and Apple devices. Also of note is the Podcast section of the site, where readers may listen to conversations with writers covering a wide range of topics, from ISIS to the evolving media.
