About the Event

Every three weeks, we host an open forum for customer-facing professionals. It's the end of the week, so each 'relaxed' call is a place to share the gains and pains of the preceding weeks while looking at a specific topic affecting us all in our current working lives. This week we look at Story Telling, through the lens of Jack Hart who's book Storycraft has become the definitive guide to crafting narrative nonfiction.

Jack Hart, master writing coach and former managing editor of the Oregonian, has guided several Pulitzer Prize–winning narratives to publication. Since its publication in 2011, this is the book to read to learn the art of storytelling as embodied in the work of writers such as David Grann, Mary Roach, Tracy Kidder, and John  McPhee.

In the new edition, published April 2021, Hart has expanded the book’s range to  delve into podcasting and has incorporated new insights from recent  research into storytelling and the brain. He has also added dozens of  new examples that illustrate effective narrative nonfiction.
