Essays Editor, Longreads

Championing the importance of long form content in a breaking news world

19th July 2018

Sari Botton is essays editor at Longreads. Founded in 2009, emerging from the success of a hashtag campaign on Twitter, the site popularised the concept of the ‘long read’, initially aggregating content from around the web. Since then the site has grown its scope to host original journalism, personal essays, local news and blog posts. A long-time advocate and participant of the slow news movement, Longreads supports longform journalism through investigative pieces, profiles, interviews and personal essays. In this in-depth interview Sari passionately argues that storytelling itself has been lost amidst the 24-hour news cycle, and outlines their plans to address this.
