Narratively Seeks New York-Centric Stories

Narratively

Narratively, the year-old website dedicated to New York stories, is the antithesis of the fast-paced, twitter-obsessed, homogeneous content that now pervades many online pubs. It was recently included in Time’s “50 Best Websites 2013” and boasts over 100,000 monthly visitors.

The site is committed to long form journalism and to stories that are under the radar. With 100 percent of its content coming from freelancers, storytellers of all forms of media are welcome to pitch:

The site’s tagline, “Local stories, boldly told,” is an apt description. Of the concept, editorial director Brendan Spiegel says, “We were all writers and photographers and reporters in New York who were interested in telling local, in-depth stories — human-interest stories; profiles of colorful characters, people and neighborhoods. The kind of thing that you don’t really see anymore now that newspaper metro sections are shrinking, and there’s not a lot of high-quality local journalism anymore.”
