At its best, content — or storytelling — is not slick endorsement of a brand or product. It provides solid, authentic information an individual can use in his or her life presented in an accessible and interesting way. But modern storytelling is requiring a constant stream of insights around audience preferences and an endemic understanding of how technology is influencing how stories get shared.
This is forcing marketers, media and academia to innovate. This means that the next generation of content creators will need enhanced writing and storytelling capabilities, even in an age of 140-character messages and texts. They must be empowered with contemporary philosophies, methodologies and skills for success.
