We are pumped to talk about styles of storytelling on Tuesday, May 12, 2015 at 2:15 – 3:15pm.

In our DrupalCon session, we will:

  • dissect what’s become a major buzzword – “long-form content.”
  • take a look at different types of long-form content
  • explore how “story” fits in
  • uncover what types of storytelling best suit your needs
  • help you figure out when long-form is right for you and your organization

Many organizations are embracing storytelling techniques to better connect with their audiences and drive them to action. They’re implementing long-form content as a platform for storytelling making use of its rich imagery, interactive elements, and better sharing capabilities.

People generally learn more and remember more when more of their senses are engaged by a story. Stories that include images get about twice the engagement as text-only stories. Stories told with visual elements are instantly captivating. The more senses that are engaged, the more emotions will be engaged and the more memorable the experience will be.

So come join us! And in the meantime, get yourself excited about storytelling by checking out this TED talk by Pixar writer Andrew Stanton.
