Storytelling and Empowerment
Workshop mit Maia Chitaia
Do, 4. April 2019, 16.00 bis 21.00 Uhr
Radio ORANGE 94.0, Klosterneuburger Straße 1 (Ecke Gaußplatz), 1200 Wien
Personal storytelling has a magnificent power in modern journalism. It gives the reader the sense of reality, without distorting it. It increases the credibility and reliability through triggering the emotional factors that finally lead the storyteller to empowerment and the reader to a sense of solidarity.
During the workshop, we will learn how to create the best personal story. We will discuss the following questions:
- Which techniques can be used during the interview?
- How to investigate the personal feelings and emotions of the respondents during the interview?
- How to prepare oneself for the in-depth interview?
- Which writing methods help? Can we describe reality through fiction techniques?
