Digital Storytelling Platforms and Methods in the Evolving Publishing Landscape
While text is still the foundation of publishing, new tools, mediums, and platforms—including websites, books, podcasts, video programming, and social media—are taking storytelling in new directions. The new digital landscape requires a new way of telling stories, as well as a convergence of editorial, marketing, and production skills to conceive, produce, sell, and distribute them. Learn how to produce and disseminate innovative digital stories on a variety of platforms by exploring relevant groundbreaking projects: features on news sites (The New York Times, The Verge), learning academies leveraging audio and video (Slate), fiction podcasts (Archive 81, The Truth), book/app projects (The Pickle Index), and social media-based novels and mini-docs. This course is designed for marketers, editors, and production staffers working in book, magazine, and newspaper publishing, as well as journalists and authors looking to break new ground in media.
