Hands-on special session: Get full attention to discuss your narrative-project

Jun 12, 2019


Oleana, 2. etasje


A very limited number of places at a hands-on narrative-projects special session, led by Mark Kramer and Jina Moore are available.

Meet up at the information.

The session will take place at Oleana, 2nd floor. It is a new feature of the conference on narrative journalism, that offers personal feedback to ten confererence goers in a special extra two-hour session preceeding the conference. It is intended for experienced journalists currently working on longform projects in all media, or who have a project in mind and wish to work out its feasibility and structure.

Mark is one of narrative journalism’s most celebrated teachers and thinkers. As a professor, editor and workshop and conference leader, he has helped hundreds of international journalists steer their projects to publication – articles, books, podcasts and documentaries. He has written many narrative books and articles, two textbooks in the field, founded the Nieman Program on Narrative Journalism at Harvard University, and helped launch our conference in Norway, and parallel conferences in Boston, London and Amsterdam. If you are registering for the conference, you may also sign up to take this seminar. The conference leaders will select ten registrants. Seminar members are expeced to send around copies of two-double-spaced pages, a project memo including your description of the work and your thoughts about where it might go, and a brief bio. You may include two or three opening pages. Send us copy (at least machine-translated into English) in advance, with permission to share it confidentially with others in the group. We’ll all agree not to discuss it outside of the seminar.

Jina is an intrepid reporter of who has broken many major stories. Please see jinamoore.com for examples. She was East Africa Bureau Chief for the New York Times and the inaugural Global Women’s Rights Reporter for BuzzFeed. Twenty years ago, she studied with Mark, and later co-launched the Nieman Conference on Narrative Journalism with him. She is a brilliant teacher and lecturer, and has helped many talented young writers build their skills and careers.

This is a rare opportunity for a limited number of experienced practitioners (6-8) to spend an intensive session with two high-level professionals who will give full attention to and discuss your project.

To sign up for this special session, please send an e-mail to fk@fortellingenskraft.no  (in English).
