New York Times begins weekly showcase of its best long-form journalism

The New York Times
Starting today, New York Times editors are picking the week’s best long-form journalism and packaging them into a “Long Story Shortlist,” posted on the Times Magazine’s blog. They’ll include one pick from the Times’ archives, too. (This week’s archive pick is a story from last fall about British tabloid hacking.) People who follow the #Longreads hashtag on Twitter can find the picks that way. || Related: How technology is renewing attention to long-form journalism.
