James Bennet, a renowned long-form journalist, was recruited by David Bradley (the owner of the Atlantic Media Company) to the Atlantic Magazine in 2006. Mr. Bennet is the magazine’s 14th editor-in-chief, and previously served as the New York Times’ White House correspondent and Jerusalem bureau chief covering the conflict in the Middle East from Israel for three years. The long-form stories he produced from Israel were widely acclaimed for their balance and sensitivity.
Although long-form journalism can be expensive for magazines to produce, it is gaining popularity, even in the age of shrinking content, short tweets and Facebook postings. “The more immersive a storytelling experience you can provide, the better chance you have of holding onto that person for the long haul . . . ,” said Mr. Bennet.
To learn more about Mr. Bennet’s experiences as a journalist, sign up for the upcoming Atlantic Meets the Pacific Conference.
