Travelled up to Boston last weekend to attend the BU Narrative Arc conference. From their website: “The NarrativeArc Conference celebrates and explores narrative journalism, a powerful, unfettered, public but individually voiced genre, as it expands into many digital media.”
It was fantastic. Really interesting to hear about non-fiction storytelling primarily from the writers view as well as to listen to great presentations by Jay Allison and Amy O’Leary (among others). Lots of public radio folks there which added a nice vibe and good questions in some of the more writing intensive presentations.
Met some cool people, got a chance to see some old Boston friends. Definitely be down with going again next year.
