Welcome to a portfolio site of long-form articles, essays and recent writings of freelance writer and multimedia producer Douglas Imbrogno. In this age of teensy tweets and hyper-short newsbits, this site celebrates long-form magazine and essay writing (as well as pithier pieces) on a wide-range of topics and personality profiles. It’s my mother’s fault. Growing up at the edge of farmland and the birth of suburbia in 1960s Ohio, she subscribed to the New York Review of Books, The Smithsonian, Esquire, New York magazine, Harper’s, the Biblical Archaeology Review and more. I was hooked.
Everything is short and sweet, fast and brief these days. But if you like to go long, you’ve reached the right place. I also reserve the right to intersperse shorter takes on the news of the days and spirit of this times. Please read on. I would love your feedback and thoughts.
