 Storyology: It’s an event you can’t afford to miss

Visit http://www.storyology.org.au for the full story.

*Storyology is a summit of media and creativity* – for journalists,
screen-writers, authors, satirists, entrepreneurs, multimedia specialists,
documentary-makers, photographers, producers and bloggers. It’s about
sharing the secrets of making stories sing and inspiring and creating the
unexpected.

Never before has storytelling been so dynamic, diverse and exciting – and
now is the time for collaboration, experimentation and bold thinking.

*This is not a writer’s festival, nor a typical conference*. Storyology is
for those who write the words to create compelling narrative; whose imagery
and sound conveys a world beyond language; whose technological brilliance
allows well-told stories to cross the globe and traverse borders.

This year’s theme “Ideas write now!” is all about rethinking the story
paradigm and exploring the rapidly expanding platforms on which great
stories are being now told.

Storyology will be worth your time and investment. There will be amazing
professional development and networking opportunities and important
discussions about the future of our craft.

All our presenters are brilliant writers, storytellers and digital gurus
from across Australia and the globe. They are experts in their fields and
passionate about new technologies and tools.

We’ve spent a lot of time talking to journalists and the creative community
in Australia about the things they want and need to know to boost their
skills and create *entrepreneurial new media businesses* with a real
prospect of survival in the digital age.  At Storyology, you’ll …

Learn how to create online stories that pack a punch, push their way to the
top of websites and *capture millions of people’s attention* by going viral.

Experiment with the *affordable, accessible and interactive new tools
*transforming
the way journalists and writers are creating and delivering their stories.

Discover *alternative publishing pathways and innovative funding
models*creating new opportunities for journalists and content
creators.

Hear from leading media organisations in Australia about the ways they
are *transforming
to thrive* in a rapidly changing and data-rich online environment.

We could go on and on. We’ve got so much packed into the four days you
won’t want to go home to sleep – there will be presentations, panel
discussions, workshops, games and corners full of inspiration, short films
and fun.

Check out the incredible list of international and Australian speakers
here: http://www.storyology.org.au/speakers/2013-speakers

We know our industry is fragmenting and how important networking is to
strengthen ties between creative types in Australia, so there will be
plenty of opportunities to *mingle with fellow delegates and speakers*.

With a special focus on our growing freelance community on August 9,
industry leaders will share tips for carving out independent careers,
covering everything from emerging markets and creative storytelling to
capturing editors’ interest and the essential tools needed to run a small
business.

Storyology is for those who write words to *create compelling narrative*;
whose imagery and sound conveys a world beyond language; whose
technological brilliance allows well-told stories to cross the globe and
traverse borders.

Whatever the platform, it always has been and always will be about the
story.

We’re expecting *more than 300 creative types* to attend Storyology – from
journalists, authors, graphic novelists and screenwriters to producers,
multimedia creatives and entrepreneurs. Will you be among them?
