Convergence Journalismteaches journalists how to make the most of digital technology to tell their stories effectively across multiple media platforms—in print, audio, video, and online. Janet Kolodzy demonstrates how to organize and coordinate fundamental building blocks—planning, reporting, and producing—for successful multimedia storytelling. This book identifies two types of journalistic stories: the short-form, or immediate, quick turn-around story, once called "spot news," and the longer-form news feature that will involve a narrative and interactive "arc." It addresses multi-media and cross-media thinking, organizing, reporting and producing for both types of news stories. Kolodzy’s approach focuses on storytelling principles, not just specific technical practices, providing journalists with the skills to use today’s technology and the tools to adapt their writing and reporting to future developments.
