CIJ Well Told is the UK’s only longform and narrative festival, and takes place on 1 and 2 March at Goldsmiths college, London. It’s a unique chance to learn storytelling skills from some of the best talents from both sides of the Atlantic. More than ever, staying solvent as a journalist requires getting the right skills, and this is a unique opportunity to meet the best in the business.
Well Told 2019 will kick off on Friday 1 March at 6.30pm with our live event. Come to Goldsmiths and hear some of the finest narrative and longform talents from both sides of the Atlantic.
Then on Saturday 2 March, sessions exploring different topics will run all day (9.30am until 6pm).
Your story through different eyes
Rachael Jolley, editor of Index on Censorship magazine, and Meera Selva from the Reuters Institute for the Study of Journalism will discuss how to balance explaining the story and making it interesting. In a world where your audience is global, journalism often needs to be written not just for the people who already know half of the story. How do you write for an international audience not just a national one? What are the common mistakes that journalists make? Too local? Too simplistic? Not understanding what the story may look like from another country?
