News organizations experiment with ‘illustrated storytelling’ — a new way to tell serious stories
“When telling stories about sensitive topics, it’s easy to stick with storytelling forms that are familiar. But some news organizations, such as California Watch and the Center for Investigative Reporting, have begun experimenting with a new way to tell serious stories — one that involves illustrations, narration and in-depth reporting. Individually, these storytelling forms aren’t new. But combined, they represent what I believe is a new and innovative type of journalism.”
This style of storytelling is custom-made for the new Facebook timeline, which will emphasize video and graphics over words.
