Course Overview

Welcome to the Art of Longform. The course was taught live by Venkatesh Rao and Sarah Perry of ribbonfarm in 2016 and 2017, and this recorded version is based on the second offering.

You should work through the lectures in order, since each builds on the previous ones. Each lecture comprises a slide deck, 1-2 videos, and a chat transcript from the live participants. It is also strongly recommended that you read the pre-reads before viewing each lecture.
