Is making stories touchable the next big thing for journalism? | Hitchhiker | Scoop.it

"It seems like a simple enough concept: We experience storytelling through our senses. So the more senses you add to an experience, the more immersive it can be — a concept that’s the root of Lighthaus, a new start-up founded by former journalist David Sarno."

Being Jungian in Today's World

Being Jungian in Today's World | Hitchhiker | Scoop.it

When a local editor recently asked to write something about Jungian psychology, she opined that Jungian thought had become popular in various segments of our community, but notably not among psychologists. I had to agree with her. Best-selling books Care of the Soul and Women Who Run with the Wolves are both based on Jung's work, and Jungian analysts Robert Moore and James Hillman have been key figures in the men's movement.

 

I encounter Jungian terms in popular songs, movies, literature, and comic strips all the time. Even Madison Avenue has incorporated Jung. In one commercial, a beer-drinker joked that appreciation of Budweiser s finer qualities is stored in the collective unconscious. Nevertheless, I continue to hear the same story from university students: Jung is barely mentioned in most psychology departments...

Jane Brody's curator insight, November 3, 2013 9:33 AM

While Jung is neglected in psychology departments, he is vital for artists.  Whether his writings pass the limited view of psychology, they are an essential touchstone for artists of all kind because they attempt to merge the mundane with the luminous.

Tips for writing short and well | Poynter.

Create. Inform. Engage. | Journalism training, media news & how to's
Minna Kilpeläinen's insight:

Great way to learn writing short by chatting. Roy Peter Clark compares sicial media writing to poetry, specially haikus. 

 

"In other words, short poems at their best require three things: focus, wit, and polish. Focus means it's about one thing. Wit means there is signs of a governing intelligence. Polish means that you've revised it -- at least a bit. Same should apply to writing for social networks."

Minna Kilpeläinen's comment, August 8, 2013 2:28 PM
Roy Peter Clark explains: "In music there is something called a "grace note." As you play one note on the piano, you lightly flick the note next to it. It is no necessary to the melody, but is often considered a lovely decoration. One of the things that contributes to both wit and polish is to select just one special word that stands out from the rest, that gives a sense that the writer really cares."
