"There’s never been a conference like Well Told in the UK before - but the need for creative journalists to be on top of their storytelling skills has never been greater. The rise of longform and narrative journalism - which breaks out of a vanilla news voice to use all the techniques of storytelling - represents the most exciting and rewarding future for journalists. And guess what? Readers, listeners, viewers and publishers benefit too. Well Told will be hosting some of the most talented reporters, authors, documentarians and podcasters, who will share the storytelling skills which make their work stand out. You can’t afford to miss it."
There is magnificent longform and narrative work done in the UK media. But it often goes uncelebrated. Well Told aims to correct that, and give working journalists from all over the country a chance to learn from each other and support the development of longform and narrative work.
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 BBC News, the London College of Communication, the Frontline Club, and Delayed Gratification magazine. If your organisation or firm would like to join our supporters, please get in touch.
We are grateful to our sponsors Shorthand, Chartbeat, Holoscribe and Harpoon Productions for their support of Well Told which is helping make the event possible. You can find out about them by clicking on their images.
