Long-Form Journalism Site Narrative.ly Nears One-Year Anniversary

Launched out of Fort Greene last September, narrative.ly is the subject this week of a solid profile piece by Melissa Goldin for the Courier Life.

Goldin spoke with the long-form journalism site’s founder/EIC Noah Rosenberg and managing editor Brendan Spiegel to get a sense of where things stand for the Libyan-domain parked enterprise. Rosenberg launched it after earning an entrepreneurial journalism certificate from City University of New York’s Graduate School of Journalism:

Each week, the site chooses a theme, such as “Summer in the City” or “The Upper Crust” [or this week's "Meet Your Maker"]. Five stories are published each week — one per day — and range from the tale of a gay male escort meeting his first female client to gentrification in Crown Heights…

They seem to be doing something right. Narratively recently took the No. 6 spot in TIME magazine’s 50 Best Websites of 2013.

Goldin goes on to provide a succinct summary of the varied ways EIC Rosenberg and his team of 17 staff, 300 contributors are bringing in revenue. Read her full piece here.
