Seeking story forms

I’m heading for St. Petersburg, Fla., next week to work on a module for Poynter Institute’s NewsU project. The module’s topic is alternative story forms.

In preparation, I’m looking to add to my collection of these forms. They go by various names:

If you have an example of an alternative story that you thought was effective, send it along in whatever format you have. We might incorporate it into the module. Thanks!

  1. I don’t mean to be a smart aleck, but it looks to me like the Austin merican-Statesman should reconsider its abbreviation for “storytelling devices.”

  2. Hi Andy,

    I saw your note on VizEd site. I have put together an Alternative Story Form catalog of 65 different ways to tell stories visually. If you’re interested, I can send you hard copy of the catalog. Give me an address. I can try to send as a PDF, but I have had problems sending in the past.

  3. Phillip,

    I think someone at Austin is trying to be funny.

    Rick,

    I will be in touch with you by e-mail. Thanks!

  4. We also used to call them “STDs” when we first started doing them at the DTH, only then it stood for “simple to digest.”
