The Multimedia Journalist textbook and website go hand-in-hand. The book provides a practical foundation for multimedia storytelling skills, while the website is a frequently updated collection of additional resources. For a synopsis of what you will find in the book, visit the Chapter Overviews section.

This site also represents an effort to build a community around the book and the concept of multimedia storytelling and digital journalism. So, check out the Forum section in which you are invited to submit examples of your own work or the work of others that you find inspiring. You can also post comments on examples and professional perspectives. Ultimately, our hope is that the boundaries of your classroom begin to dissolve as you join a broader conversation about these topics.
