Friday Find: The Art of Long-Form Journalism

I’m so glad that The Writers’ Institute at The Graduate Center of The City University of New York records its events. That’s how I got to catch one of the events I wasn’t able to get to in person: a panel on “The Art of Long-Form Journalism,” introduced and moderated by Christopher Cox, senior editor at Harper’s and former fiction editor at The Paris Review. The featured guests include: Joan Acocella, Rivka Galchen, Alex Ross and David Samuels. Watching it is a pretty nice way to spend about 77 minutes. Maybe you’ll do so this weekend.

Enjoy. See you back here on Monday!

  1. Dear Erica! I’ve been prowling around your wonderful blogs and posts and essays. Particularly moved by your defense of the use of current events. What a scholarly and spirited and generous articulation of that necessity! And your very funny discussion of using foreign words in fiction. How would we write authentically about a dancer wishing luck to another on opening night without, for example, Merde! Thank you for all you do.
