The Atavist

The Atavist Magazine produces one blockbuster nonfiction story a month, generally between 5,000 and 30,000 words. Atavist stories are cinematic tales built off of in-depth reporting and writing from the best journalists and essayists out there. In four years we’ve been nominated for eight National Magazine Awards (and won once) and an Emmy, among many other reporting, writing, and design accolades. Many of our stories have been optioned for major Hollywood film and TV projects.
