This course teaches the fundamentals of good storytelling.
This course should be taken by anyone interested in constructing a compelling story in any form: be it a written article, a podcast, a video documentary or something else entirely.
Good storytelling requires a solid understanding of the techniques necessary to engage, interest and convince an audience. This course teaches these techniques by examining the different components of a story, step by step, and offering tips on how you can create these components in your own storytelling.
You will get the most out of this course if you have already:
- Completed our course on Reporting 101: Interviewing fundamentals; and
- Identified your own story topic and conducted reporting for it.
Many of this course’s mini exercises ask you to apply the course concepts to your own story production efforts. Thus, if you have not already thought of a story topic and conducted reporting, you may want to do that first before beginning this course.
This course takes roughly 30 minutes to complete. Alright, let’s get started!
