Share Your Story: Yearbook During COVID-19
What is the best way to tell a yearbook story? The options for staffs can be overwhelming.
Although there are many choices, from Q&As to infographics, the long-form feature story is still one of the very best. Some stories must be told in depth and detail.
We often talk about creating showstopper designs for visual variety, but are we also focusing on telling showstopping stories and creating showstopping writing?
Jim Jordan and Susan Massy are strong advocates for telling the best story possible in the best way possible. Long-form feature writing takes strong reporting and hard work, but the story that it allows you to tell makes all the effort worth it.
In this webinar, they discuss how to expand the depth of your yearbook writing. Sign up today to watch the replay.
