Event Title

Storytelling: Writing for Stage, Screen, and Page

Presenter Information

Diana Witt, James Madison University

Date

April 2020

Description

The stories that we tell and see represented across various mediums have cultural and social implications on our world. They shape our perceptions and expectations of the society we live in. For my independent major “Storytelling: Writing for Stage, Screen, and Page,” I will be delving into the styles of writing for different disciplines that serve the main function of telling stories. There is an element of creativity through all writing, but the body of research about creativity is still emerging. I hope to understand how to construct stories for contemporary audiences across a variety of platforms and how those constructions achieve different goals. I am also exploring how storytelling is evolving as written texts are presented in new ways in the digital age.
