The iStory: Telling Stories Across Platforms

How do you choose the right platform for your story? With the Web — and now mobile — you have more options than ever. At first glance they seem daunting, but these platforms offer exciting new ways to add depth to your stories and attract new readers. Award-winning multimedia veteran Regina McCombs of the Poynter Institute will be on hand in Toronto to help sort it all out in an hour-long session on July 16. McCombs’ courses on video reporting, mobile news, and social media are the gold standard of the news industry, and convention attendees won’t want to miss this invaluable session.

“This session is a natural extension of AAN’s partnership with Poynter’s NewsU to offer our members online training, particularly in the area of new media,” said Editorial Chair Julia Goldberg. “Hopefully those who haven’t taken advantage yet of AAN’s discounts to the NewsU webinars will want to after they attend Regina’s session in Toronto.”
