The Sunday Long Read

The best longform journalism.
Every Sunday.

The goal of The Sunday Long Read newsletter is simple: To put the past week’s best journalism in your hands every Sunday morning—or, as a friend said, “to screw up my Sundays with far too much great stuff to read.” Did we mention it’s free?

“The Sunday Long Read is kind of like a dream social media feed—it’s impeccably curated, thoughtful, and introduces me to writers and publications that I don’t come across in my day-to-day reading.” 

Mina Kimes

“That rare thing, a newsletter born of love, not marketing or, God forbid, branding.”

Reading The Sunday Long Read is like working toward my PhD in life…. I feel so great about the future of journalism when I read these great pieces.
