If you love longform writing across a variety of genres and subjects, then Longreads is for you. Founded by Mark Armstrong in 2009, Longreads publishes original investigative journalism, essays, and fiction pieces. In addition, Longform also curates works of 1,500 words or more that have been previously published in other magazines. Visitors can check out original pieces in the Exclusives section or curated pieces in Our Picks. Recently published Exclusives include a retrospective appreciation by musician Tom Maxwell of "Ella and Louis," a 1956 collaboration between Louis Armstrong and Ella Fitzgerald; an excerpt from novelist Marcy Dermansky's recently published, The Red Car; and an essay by Stanford University professor Adrian Daub about the origins and ubiquity of the "BRAAAM" sound in movie soundtracks (you'll recognize it thanks to included embedded videos). In the Our Picks section, readers will not only find a diverse collection of essays, but also lists to aid in the discovery of new reading material. As of this write-up, readers can find a variety of "year end" lists, including the best Under-Recognized Books of 2016.
