In these uncertain times, storytelling through journalism is a way of communicating not only facts, context and information, but equally an understanding and a wider perspective and understanding of the times through which we are all living. Such storytelling need to be informed, novel, original. evidence based and above all esle persuasive. It is through storytelling that this is often best achieved.
"Dogs sniff each other. Human beings tell stories. This is our native language.”
