Narrative journalism represents, we believe, the most exciting and rewarding future for readers, viewers and watchers - and also for journalists and publishers too. Instead of being confined to a vanilla news voice, narrative journalists use all the techniques of storytelling - including character, place, scenes, suspense and surprise - while always being committed to telling the truth. We are busy lining up some of the most interesting narrative journalists from the UK and US. More details will be revealed in the coming weeks.
There is some magnificent work in narrative journalism in the UK media but it often goes uncelebrated. By staging the UK's first narrative journalism conference, which will bring together working journalists from all over the country, we aim to learn from each other and support the development of narrative reporting.
Well Told will take place over the Spring Bank Holiday weekend in 2017, that's 27 and 28 May. It will be held in central London. Details of venues will be published soon, but get the date in your diary now.
Our mission is to get the UK media to treat narrative journalism with the respect it deserves. So our blog is featuring some of the best examples from the UK media - as selected by the team behind @Queue_Reads. If you've done something you're proud of, let us know here.
We are delighted to have the support of one major UK broadcaster, the oldest journalism course in the country and some of the best new operators within new media. If your organisation or firm would like to join our supporters, please get in touch.
