Center for Public Integrity senior reporter Kristen Lombardi discusses how she's learned to craft dense, data-driven investigations as compelling, long-form narratives. In this session, she'll walk you through reporting and story-telling techniques she's used to put a human face on investigative pieces rooted in data--from finding characters who best illustrate the analysis to constructing narratives out of reams of information--in order to tell powerful stories that will not just grab readers' attention, but carry them through complicated issues.
I got a great recommendation from a friend to use Go Narrative to help me put together a brochure. It turned out better than I had expected. It is professional, meaningful, and beautiful. Then I hired them to write a customer story. Really Really good results. Then I hired Go Narrative to create a new website. Wow!!! Once again much better than what we had and in my opinion, makes my competitors sites look bad! Go Narrative did a great job and my website show cases their skills. We have used Go Narrative for several other things and will continue. Go Narrative was the right solution for me and I believe it will be for you.
Sociologists Jaber F. Gubrium and James A. Holstein have contributed to the formation of a constructionist approach to narrative in sociology. From their book The Self We Live By: Narrative Identity in a Postmodern World (2000), to more recent texts such as Analyzing Narrative Reality (2009)and Varieties of Narrative Analysis (2012), they have developed an analytic framework for researching stories and storytelling that is centered on the interplay of institutional discourses (big stories) on the one hand, and everyday accounts (little stories) on the other. The goal is the sociological understanding of formal and lived texts of experience, featuring the production, practices, and communication of accounts.
