Narratively, the local long-form start-up that I profiled back in June, has entered its fund-raising phase.
The site, which plans to publish one piece of in-depth New York-based journalism a day centered around alternating weekly themes across multiple story-telling platforms, launched a campaign Tuesday morning on Kickstarter, the startup incubator through which users can pledge money toward a project's set fund-raising goal. (Each project only gets to keep the money if it actually meets the goal.)
Narratively is aiming for $50,000 by Sept. 10. Its campaign had racked up 27 backers for an early total of $1,295 as of this posting.
The site, which presently only exists in the form of a launch page, was founded by Noah Rosenberg, a regular New York Times freelancer who's been soliciting contributions for the past several months from fellow freelancers who write for the Times and other publications.
There's more about Narratively here.
