Future of Long Form: My online research project

Between 2012 and 2014 I created an online research project, The Future of Long Form. It was targeted towards writers of long form non-fiction. The Future of Long Form, 'explored the space between writers and readers in the new media galaxy.' I feel compelled now to add,  'of the era.' ;-)


I interviewed industry experts, reported on events and experimented with the possibilities of self-publishing with an article produced each fortnight.

Future of Long Form was recognised by the Melbourne Writers Festival, The Emerging Writers' Festival and the NonfictioNow conference (among others).

I stopped this research project once I turned my attention to researching (and funding the research) for my own manuscript (about recovery in northern Japan after the March, 2011 earthquake, tsunami and nuclear meltdown).

Rather than delete it entirely I have now archived it into this site. Feel free to read, but keep in mind that some of the content - particularly that relating to technology - is going to read as a little dated! You may find some of the external sites I reference no longer exist.
