    The Future of Longform Publishing

    Tuesday, April 29, 5:30 to 7:00 PM

    Where: The Brookings Institution, Falk Auditorium
    1775 Massachusetts Ave. NW
    Washington, DC 20036


    Last June, Brookings launched the Brookings Essay, positioning Brookings near the front of the emergence of longform journalism in digital publishing. In the spirit of Brookings's commitment to high-quality, independent research, each Brookings Essay covers major topics of public policy by distinguished authors, including Brookings scholars. The intention of the Brookings Essay is to engage a wider audience in the most pressing policy issues facing the U.S. and the world.

    In the interest of exploring the impact of this platform on public policy and public debate, on April 29, Brookings will host a panel discussion with representatives from some of the foremost leaders in longform publishing to discuss their experiences and plans for longform in the future. The participants will include representatives from ESPN, The New York Times, Slate and The Washington Post.

    This event will coincide with the publication of the latest Brookings Essay, Stuart Taylor's "The Big Snoop: Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Terrorists." Each Brookings Essay can be found at www.brookings.edu/essay.
