“Dream” Job – Foster

Outside of Sports Illustrated, I’d love to write for Esquire because they do some of the best long-form journalism anywhere. They have a great staff, with Chris Jones, Michael Paterniti and a who’s-who of good storytellers.

They cover a wide range of topics but always manage to find interesting stories, and Esquire generally gives its writers freedom to tell stories in different ways and with different narrative structures.

The audience typically is males — especially, I imagine, on their website, where the tabs include “Style and Grooming,” “Women,” and “Food and Drink,” among others, with special attention paid to style, music and entertainment and a male-slanted subject matter. That sort of material doesn’t interest me all that much but Esquire‘s narrative nonfiction is always must-read content.
