Story Organization: Defining the pieces and assembling the product

Recorded on February 14, 2014

Witherspoon will discuss how building stories can be easier when you start with a list of parts. We’ll cover how to break down information into elemental pieces then go to work with an assembly manual full of concrete but flexible approaches.

In this webinar, Witherspoon will cover:

  • Ways to capture and visualize information you’ve gathered
  • Approaches to structuring information within short or long-form stories
  • Organizing with words and images in both print and digital platforms

*Log-in instructions for the webinar will be sent to the email address provided in the registration the week of the scheduled webinar.
