The new group of Nieman fellows has arrived in Cambridge and will be spending this academic year diving into Harvard courses and research opportunities. I’ve taken the time talk one-on-one with some of the new arrivals this week, including narrative writers Darcy Frey and Josh Prager, as well as NPR’s Gwen Thompkins, who will be exploring the art of storytelling in several arenas, from music composition to epic poetry. In the coming months, we’ll continue to take advantage of the brain power and experience of this year’s group, and we look forward to sharing some of their questions and insights with the Storyboard audience.
But you don’t have to be a Nieman fellow to have connections at the Storyboard. If there’s an example of great storytelling that we haven’t covered, if you’d like to pitch an idea for a Storyboard post, or if you know of anyone who’s looking at narrative in new or unusual ways, please don’t hesitate to tell us all about it.
