News organizations experiment with ‘illustrated storytelling’ — a new way to tell serious stories

News organizations experiment with ‘illustrated storytelling’ — a new way to tell serious stories | Tools for journalists | Scoop.it

"When telling stories about sensitive topics, it’s easy to stick with storytelling forms that are familiar. But some news organizations, such as California Watch and the Center for Investigative Reporting, have begun experimenting with a new way to tell serious stories — one that involves illustrations, narration and in-depth reporting. Individually, these storytelling forms aren’t new. But combined, they represent what I believe is a new and innovative type of journalism."

By framing it as a back and forth between two poles, it leaves a lot out. It actually doesn’t really recognize how close Greenwald and Keller really are in their basic assumptions about what kind of journalism is important and why, in their faith in the truth and in reader’s abilities to sort out really hard questions for themselves.

Make your own in four easy steps.

 

Create your spreadsheet:

The rise and rise of branded journalism | Writing Bar

The rise and rise of branded journalism | Writing Bar | Tools for journalists | Scoop.it

While the media landscape is peppered with announcements about print magazine closures – such as Fairfax’s recent shutdown of the (sydney)magazine and (melbourne)magazine – many writers are mourning the loss of opportunities in this space. At the same time, however, we’re also observing a rise in branded journalism opportunities with an increasing number of corporations adding “publishing” to their core activities.

 

So what is branded journalism anyway?


Branded journalism is an emerging medium of communication used by businesses, large and small, to tell stories about their business, their customers and industry. However, unlike old-school marketing messages, these stories rely heavily on traditional principles of journalism. They are short on “sales pitch” and heavy on storytelling. It would not be surprising to find some of these stories in regular mainstream newspapers or magazines.
