We've all seen stories about the latest jobs reports and images of protesters on Wall Street clamoring for economic change. But business journalists will tell you that today's up-and-down economy is yielding stories far richer in depth, humanity and impact. Our panel of reporters share insights on how they are sifting through the post-recession data and trends to yield reporting gold.
Visuals > Words. Sponsored by The New York Times
Great journalism goes beyond words. Images, graphics, databases, sounds, video, animation - they could enhance, oftentimes surpass and occasionally even replace, a text narrative. We'll show you how to use graphics to tell the who, what, when, where and why.
Audio Storytelling Workshop. Sponsored by NPR.
What makes a good audio story? Whether your goal is to do a full-blown radio story, use audio clips in your blog, accompany photos on the web, or create a podcast, this one-day overview workshop will show you how to understand audio's storytelling strengths, select the best audio, write for the ear, and write to sound. You'll also get an opportunity to use audio recording equipment and to do digital audio editing. The session is limited to 6 people.
