A discussion about storytelling and journalism

The yarn spinners

One of three public panel discussions at the State Library of Western Australia as part of our “Shining a light on the truth” program.

Journalism helps shine a light on injustice and changes our world for the better; but it can also be really bloody entertaining. Hear from some of Australia’s great storytellers and yarn-spinners about the narrative techniques they use to make sure their message resonates with readers, listeners and viewers. From research to sparkling prose, you won’t want to miss this discussion about how to make great stories.
