Unraveling the Narrative

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

The appetite for long-form storytelling is as strong as ever. But the way we tell stories is changing. Long-form podcasts are thriving. Narrative stories now weave in photos, videos and interactive components along with written words. That means storytellers must be agnostic, yet strategic, about the medium through which they unravel the narrative. This session will explore new formats of narrative storytelling and editing, and walk through the process from the initial pitch to executing a story on multiple platforms.
