The Power of Narrative

8:00 am — Boston University

Telling true stories in turbulent times

The Power of Narrative

The Power of Narrative Conference has convened in several places under several names since its founding at Boston University in 1998. Their mission remains constant as storytelling journalism goes digital: helping narrative journalists to strengthen their craft skills, puzzle out the complex ethics of intimate journalism, and impart the down-to-earth humanity that is the genre’s strength. Every year, we quickly sell all our seats. The conference talks are stimulating, sophisticated, practical and relevant, aimed at mid-career nonfiction storytellers in many media, offered by terrific and varied practitioners. The vigorous Q & A sessions following each talk keep us on-target. And, between sessions and at meal breaks we program in time to meet speakers and new colleagues and share ideas, aspirations, projects, networks. In these turbulent times, our candid, informed, independent journalism is crucial.

Aware of an event that would be of interest to the Digital Initiative community of people working at the intersections of technology and business? If it's a good fit for our audience, we'll promote it here.
