Graduate students, midcareer journalists, writers and academics are invited to join more than 50 award-winning broadcasters, filmmakers and online experts at the ttth annual Nieman Conference on Narrative Journalism. The March 20-22 event is at the Sheraton Boston hotel.
The annual event celebrates the art of storytelling in every format and medium. Participants learn skills, interact with experts, share ideas with peers and expand their horizons.
Keynotes include Gwen Ifill (Washington Week), Jon Lee Anderson (The New Yorker), and Pulitzer Prize-winning columnist Connie Schultz (The Plain Dealer).
"Our theme, "Telling True Stories in Turbulent Times," reflects the urgency journalists feel to learn new skills and adapt to new technology at a time of dramatic change in the news industry," says Ellen Tuttle, communications director of the Harvard University-based Nieman Center.
