“Humans are narrative creatures. We explain our lives and our world through stories. As journalism struggles to find its bearings in the digital world, we must not forget that bite-size information and speedy delivery won’t displace the well-reported, well-written, and well-produced narrative stories that explain, investigate, create emotion and build community.
This conference is aimed at reporters and lovers of narrative nonfiction who aim to tell or consume more story-driven journalism. The speakers will address both the need for storytelling in news and feature journalism, as well as share best practices and tips.
The one-day conference will be held on Saturday, November 26, in Bucharest.”
