Medium Backs New Long-form Journalism Platform
Joshuah Bearman, the writer responsible for the article that became the film Argo, and Joshua Davis, the contributing editor at Wired, have come together to create Epic Magazine — a platform for long-form journalism and nonfiction. Their about page suggests they want people to share “good true-life tale[s]” that “grab you right from the start.”
Medium, the blogging platform created by Twitter co-founders Evan Williams and Biz Stone, is backing Epic.
"Epic stories will debut on Medium, a new venture by Twitter founders Evan Williams and Biz Stone," the founders write in Epic’s ‘About’ section. "Medium is a platform built for ideas that should last. And that’s what Epic aims for: stories worth remembering."
