Graydon Carter’s Formula for Magazine Articles

Graydon Carter Editor's Letter 2

“I believe that the best magazine articles have at least two–and better three–elements to them: access, narrative, and disclosure. That is,: on-the-ground reporting; a story arc with a beginning, middle, and end; and revelations that move the scholarship forward. A great magazine article must also always have at its core a measure of conflict.”
