By the Book: The Long and Short of Longform

In a world of bite-sized news and clickbait headlines, longform articles can often seem like a hard sell - but they are not without their fans, particularly for their ability to bring together writing style and narrative. We look at what it takes to write longform articles, and how they fit into today’s increasingly digital world, by speaking with writer Emily Fishbein. In Footnotes, we close the discussion off by sharing some favourite long reads.
