UPDATE (21.11)  Dacă v-ați decis târziu să participați la conferința de jurnalism narativ pe care o organizăm în weekend cu Decât o Revistă trebuie să știți că speranța nu e pierdută. Chiar dacă cele 100 de locuri inițiale (pentru toată ziua) au fost date, am pus la dispoziție bilete pentru sesiunea de discursuri de dimineață. Costă 20 de euro. Vă puteți înregistra aici.


It’s going to be an exciting fall for storytellers: Decât o Revistă magazine has summoned four fantastic American journalists to Romania, to share their stories, best practices and tips.

The Power of Storytelling is the first annual Bucharest narrative journalism conference, aimed at reporters and lovers of narrative nonfiction who want to tell or consume more story-driven journalism.

Humans are narrative creatures. We explain our lives and our world through stories. As journalism struggles to find its bearings in the digital world, we must not forget that bite-size information and speedy delivery won’t displace the well-reported, well-written, and well-produced narrative stories that explain, investigate, create emotion and build community.

The conference will take place on Saturday, November 26. It will be hosted by the Romanian American University of Bucharest, located at Bdul. Expoziției 1B. (View map in a new window).

Jacqui Banaszynski is a Pulitzer Prize winning reporter who now teaches and coaches other writers, from students to fellow top award winners.

Alex Tizon is a Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist and faculty member at the University of Oregon. He is a former Seattle bureau chief for the Los Angeles Times, a former longtime staff writer for the Seattle Times, and a contributor to Newsweek, 60 Minutes and Sierra magazine.
