Welcome to Longreads! This site focuses on sharing stories with you that are over 1500 words long, thus the name Longreads. These stories can be fiction or nonfiction, and are often community recommended.

When you arrive at the site, you’ll find the most recently featured Longread at the top of the page. Then you’ll find the 2016 collection of Longreads, and beneath that more featured Longreads. If you scroll further down the page, you’ll find a list of Topics on the right side of the page. Clicking on a subject under Topics will whisk you away to that topic’s collection of Longreads.

At the top of the page you have more navigation options. You can check out the Our Picks and Exclusives sections by clicking on them from  the navigation strip along the top of the page. Our Picks features Longreads selected by the staff. Exclusives brings you stories that have been funded by the Longreads Community Members.

This is a great way to find new things to read. I like to check this site out for something to read between classes, because I have a 20 minute break between places I need to be. You’ll notice when you look at the entries a lot of them note how much time it will take you to read them.
