Hello! I am an editor for Longreads and I am looking to publish original reported essays and longform journalism. I have been an editor at The New Republic and Lapham's Quarterly and my own writing has been featured in The Guardian, The Believer, Brain Pickings, and Tin House.
I like to publish pieces that are rigorously researched and reported, as well as emotionally intelligent and driven by storytelling, with characters like:
Mothers who just want to do LSD in peace, teens who live their hopes and dreams out on Tumblr, sailors who risk their sanity in a solo race around the world, hippies who give up on their San Francisco utopia, politicians who know how to make an audience laugh, a presidential candidate who hasn't outgrown his high school friends, a charismatic philanthropist who gives his millions away one newspaper column at a time.
For freelance editing and manuscript consultation, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
