Slow Journalism Matters


Why? Because today’s ultra-fast news cycle rates being first above being right. It gives us the beginning of stories but rarely their end. It promotes kneejerk reactions and clickbait journalism over context and perspective. It lends significance to social media nonsense, extreme opinions and celebrity fluff.

We believe in a slower, smarter approach, and with your support we are taking a stand. Each purchase of a copy of Delayed Gratification is a vote for non-partisan, independent, intelligent Slow Journalism.

Every issue of the magazine contains investigative reporting, challenging photo features and beautiful infographics which tell the stories others have missed – or mistold. We cut through the white noise and return to the events that matter after the dust has settled.

Armed with three months’ worth of hindsight, we aim to capture the times and leave you inspired, informed and thoroughly entertained.

Slow Journalism matters. We’re glad to have you with us.
