Literati meets Digerati

Just found out about the Brooklyn based digital publishing house, The Atavist, that seeks to find a place for long form narrative journalism.  They are publishing stories that “are longer than magazine articles, shorter than books,” that will be available for mobile devices tablets, and e-readers.   So far, they only have a few stories up,  which can also be found on Kindle Singles. The Atavist has its own free app on itunes.

This app and the stories themselves will blend text with multimedia to make an enhanced digital reading experience.

On their website, they link to friends and partners, others sharing/preserving the longform narrative in the digital age. I’m curious about byliner.com.

It will be interesting to see how this evolves and what it will mean for writers, publishers and readers.
