Anti-requisite(s): 58210 Storytelling, Narrative and Features


This subject is designed to move students from news production to storytelling through longer-form journalism, focusing on the production of features and other forms of non-fiction narrative in a range of media. The subject aims to give students insight into the implications of convergence for storytelling, and how to develop a range of styles and their applications across media. An understanding of voice, story structure, interviewing technique, language and, where relevant, the use of visual images and sound are further developed in the context of students' own story production. Through a reflective approach, students develop a critical appreciation of the role played by narrative and language in media discourse, and how this relates to the work of journalists.
