The Big Roundtable: Long-Form Narrative Journalism

July 23, 2013 § 1 Comment


An announcement from the good folks at the Big Roundtable:

algrt_webOur aim is to connect writers and readers of ambitious narrative journalism by experimenting with new ways of finding, vetting, editing and distributing those stories.

Think of us as Kickstarter for Writers. And we are open for submissions.

If you have a story that cannot seem to find a home in traditional outlets — too long for a magazine, too short for a book? — consider sending it our way. While we cannot promise publication, we can assure you of a thoughtful read, one that turns the traditional editor-as-gatekeeper-and-tastemaker model on its head.

Instead, we give our members a voice in determining whether an audience exists for a story. Authors of pieces that appear on our site earn 90 percent of the sales revenue.

In three weeks since its launch The Big Roundtable has already formed partnerships with longreads.com and theweek.com, which have expanded our reach considerably.

Our goal is to make writers happy. And that begins by treating them with the respect and courtesy they are due for taking the risks that all writers must.

We looking forward to hearing from you — and reading your stories.
