    The Science of Storytelling with Will Storr

    Will Storr demonstrates how master storytellers manipulate and compel us, leading us on a journey from the Hebrew scriptures to Mr Men, from Booker Prize-winning literature to box set TV. Applying dazzling psychological research and cutting-edge neuroscience to the foundations of our myths and archetypes, he shows how we can use these tools to tell better stories – and make sense of our chaotic modern world.

    Investigative journalism meets story: The case of Syria

    Investigative journalists are now vulnerable not only to stifling libel laws and facile contradiction by fake news and disinformation. In a journey which takes him from rural Syria to continental Europe for GQ, James Harkin tracks down the faked and then the real story of a daring revolutionary singer in Syria who either did or didn't end up with his throat slit by government loyalists. The article narrates the singer's story, Harkin's harrowing detective work, and fills us in painlessly on the tangled and deadly political allegiances protecting the supporting the regime. He'll speak about narrative-investigative crossover pieces with this article as a case in point. The talk will still make sense if you haven't read the article - but it's a great read.

    Freelancing: The business end

    Times can rarely have seen harder for freelances, with even digital players making cutbacks or going out of business. For many journalists freelancing is their only option if they are to do the job they love. For some it's the freedom they will never give up. This session will tackle some of the business basics of being a freelance, as well as the techniques for trying to make those grand ambitions of writing longform features a reality.

    Finding the drama in data

    You can use infographics to tell important, in depth stories which pack a punch. Rob Orchard, editor of Delayed Gratification, the Slow Journalism magazine, shows how, using beautiful examples, to dive into data to bring back great features, and how editors can decide whether to commission a 5,000-word piece or a double-page spread of stats.

    Your story through different eyes

    In a world where your audience is global, journalism often needs to be written not just for the people who already know half of the story. How do you get the balance between explaining the story and making it interesting? How do you write for an international audience not just a national one? What are the common mistakes that journalists make? Too local? Too simplistic? Not understanding what the story may look like from another country? Rachael Jolley, editor of Index on Censorship, and Meera Selva from the Reuters Institute for the Study of Journalism, have some answers.

    The art of pitching

    You might have the best ideas in the world, but what you'll probably also need is a commission from a publisher. Pitching successfully to features editors is a skill like any other, and in this session we are bringing together writers, editors, contributors and commissioners including Stuart McGurk from GQ, Rosie Blau from 1843 and Finlo Rohrer from BBC News, to talk over what works and what - definitely - doesn't.

    Interactivity v storytelling?

    New hardware and software bring with them fantastic experiences for audiences - whether VR, AR or 360. But the challenge for journalists is to use these new tools in ways which enhance the story rather than get in the way. Is such a thing really possible? Zillah Watson, the BBC's expert on the subject, debates.

    Narratives from the inside

    Victoria Anderson and Wallis Eates went into HMP Wandsworth intending to make some digital stories with the prisoners, as they had done a number of times before. But when they tried to leave the prison on this occasion, the authorities destroyed what they had created, deleting files and confiscating notebooks. Instead of killing their project, it inspired the pair to turn it into something much more ambitious. In this talk they will explain how they used comics journalism to bring the prisoners' remarkable stories to life - and to the outside. They will also talk about how they used crowdfunding to help their project become a reality.

    The superhero of features

    For decades, Barry Newman was the king of the news feature. Time after time he brought his paper, the Wall Street Journal stories which, without fluff or invention, brought creativity, imagination and wit into the heart of news reporting. One of his peers once described him as “some kind of pen-in-hand superhero”. Another said: “The first time I read a Barry Newman story... I was so jealous of its wit, clarity, vision and pace that I wanted to punch the guy. Who tells stories like that in under 1,500 words. Nobody. He’s the master.” In this finale session to CIJ Well Told 2019, Barry talks about how he did the impossible, day after day.
