Keeping you up to date on all things Storyboard, we’d like to point out a few new features and opportunities you might have missed.
*We’ve collected some of our most popular chats with narrative storytellers in a new #longreads section, where you can read Q-and-A’s with David Grann, Pam Colloff, Buzz Bissinger, Gay Talese, Jeanne Marie Laskas, Lori Waselchuk — the list is growing.
*We’ve added a subscription-based newsletter summarizing what’s new on Storyboard. Subscribe here, and every few weeks we’ll send you a reminder of what’s been happening — and a taste of what’s coming up.
*We’re now taking pitches for our weekly “Why’s this so good?” series, in which a guest writer breaks down a favorite story or project. Here’s Radiolab’s Pat Walters on Burkhard Bilger, and narrative guru Ben Yagoda on Calvin Trillin, and NYU journalism professor Yvonne Latty on a groundbreaking bilingual multimedia narrative. If you’d like to write an installment, we’d love to hear from you. Details here.
*And coming soon: View Finder, a video-journalism column by the New York Times’ Sean Patrick Farrell, a video reporter and print writer who has covered daily and long-form documentary stories around the world. He’ll write about everything from the hallmarks of a winning project to the best multimedia tools for the modern field reporter.
Drop us a note if there’s narrative news you’d like to share or ideas you’d like to see us cover.
And as always, thanks for reading.
