Where a few years ago it seemed the Internet and its perceived effects on our attention span would lead to shorter and shorter stories, the opposite has happened. There is a burgeoning literary journalism movement led by writers at magazines and newspapers across the country. A good sampling of those writers can be found in a new collection compiled by noted Esquire writer Mike Sager and Walt Harrington.

Next Wave: America’s New Generation of Great Literary Journalists, can be purchased as an eBook and features writing from some of the best in the business. Definitely worth checking out. If nothing else, read the table of contents and go find those writers.
