Longform Journalism Fund


As part of a series of strategic growth objectives for 2025, NRI launched a new fund to support longform journalism in National Review and increase the portfolio of notable, outside talent who write for the magazine. The fund covers the writers’ fees to produce in-depth essays on a broad range of important topics. To maximize the impact of each piece, NRI arranges media promotion and special virtual events with the authors.
