Registration is now open for “The Latest in Longform,” the new, small-scale narrative journalism conference at the University of California at Berkeley’s Graduate School of Journalism. Organized by former Nieman narrative maven Constance Hale, the Nov. 8 conference is designed for experienced journalists, with attendance limited to 75.
In a Q-and-A with Storyboard earlier this summer, Hale described her vision for the one-day event, saying, “We are stripping things down to what really matters. Journalists don’t need a fancy hotel, or $40 box lunches. They just need each other.”
The New Yorker’s Adam Gopnik and Jake Silverstein, editor in chief of The New York Times Magazine, are keynote speakers and the line-up also features Los Angeles Times writer Tom Curwen, Mother Jones editor in chief Clara Jeffery and literary agent Wendy Strothman. Cost is $275 for the daylong event, with master classes available for an additional $50. You can find more information about the program and register here: http://narrativeatcal.com/.
