Longform.org Essays

Pamela Colloff, “The Innocent Man”


Three Things that made the essay noteworthy:

  1. The essay read like a storybook, a great way to keep the reader interested.
  2. The essay had a great sense of anticipation, much like a movie trailer.
  3. The essay also drew attention to a real life issue, all while providing an extremely real life example.


The readers of Longform appreciated this essay so much because it used a real-life example to show a major issue in the United State’s judicial system. The words were crisp and easy to understand, all signs of a good writer.
