The Sunday Long Read, 1/26/20

Happy Sunday! We’ve got four short notes to share before we get to the long reads.

1. Firstly, welcome to all of our new subscribers! We’re honored and excited to have you. For a little more information about the SLR, we have a short FAQ section on our website covering who we are, what this is, and why. If you’ve got any other question or suggestion, please reach out directly or on Twitter! There are few things we enjoy more than hearing from you all.

2. We’re hoping to expand our volunteer team again in 2020 by adding a junior producer who will help us put together the newsletter each weekend. If you’re interested in learning more, please reach out to us or our current producer, the always aces Etienne Lajoie!

3. Boston University’s Power of Narrative Conference is now right around the corner! We’re proud to be supporting the gathering again this year and highly encourage writers young and old to check it out.

4. If you missed the latest episode of Don’s ESPN docuseries, BACKSTORY, last week, you can stream it anytime. It will also re-air several times over the next couple months.

Alright, now silence your cell phone and get ready for the main event.
