EJTA Milan 2015 will focus on Narrative Journalism and Storytelling on Digital Platforms.

The topic.

When we take a look at the current online media landscape, we see an overload of informations flowing and buzzing around, on the web and on social networks.

As journalism users, professionals and teachers, we must find a way to create contents that stand up among the tide. Now that news has become a commodity, high-quality stories – narrative longforms, immersive articles – have a greater value both for the readers’ engagement and for the sustainability of news outlets.

To achieve this, we should consider technology as an ally: platforms, video, data, animations and other digital features can help us enriching our storytelling, at a small fraction the price they costed only two years ago.

At #EjtaMilan2015, we will share teaching best-practices, methodologies and experiences in narrative journalism from our journalism courses; we will have a closer look at some of the best storytelling experiments, analyzing complexities and outputs; we will then explore the related professional opportunities, trends and visions.

We’re looking forward to meeting you all in Milan for #EjtaMilan2015!
