Principles of Multimedia Journalism: Packaging Digital News

In this much-needed examination of the principles of multimedia journalism, co-authors Richard Koci Hernandez and Jeremy Rue systemize and categorize the characteristics of the new, often experimental storyforms that appear on today’s digital news platforms. By identifying a classification of digital news packages and introducing a new vocabulary for how content is packaged and presented, the authors give students and professionals alike a way to talk about and understand the importance of story design in an era of convergence storytelling.
