IRE Preview: New nine-session track focuses on the art of storytelling

A special track of nine IRE Conference panels this year will focus on elevating our writing.

It will include a series of “master classes” led by Pulitzer winning journalists Louise Kiernan, Walt Bogdanich and Sam Roe who each will dissect one of their classic prize-winning investigations with an emphasis on the writing choices. We’ll also feature acclaimed writing coach Jacqui Banaszynski who will lead two workshops.

These special panels and workshops are designed to dig in deep into narrative arc, structure and character development. The track will also include some of our old favorites, including “writing the data story” and others.
