Saturday, November 7th


Latest in Longform Conference

Visit The Berkeley Narrative Journalism Conference website for complete and up-to-the-minute changes.

The second annual “Latest in Longform” conference will happen on Saturday, November 7, 2015, hosted by UC Berkeley’s Graduate School of Journalism. It promises to be one of the most sizzling events of the year for those exploring the creative edges and the best traditions of nonfiction storytelling.

Under the direction of journalist and UC Berkeley alum Constance Hale, top writers and editors will join an audience of talented journalists for a bracing, all-day conversation about the state of literary nonfiction. Keynote conversations with Julia Turner, Douglas McGray, and Rebecca Solnit will look at the landscape for groundbreaking work—whether online, in glossy magazines, or in books. Provocative panels and intensive workshops will focus on the craft. Optional master classes on Sunday, November 8, will allow attendees to dig deeper, developing new skills and insight.

In a Q & A on Nieman Storyboard, Hale lays out the vision of the conference. An extensive articlepublished by the American Society of Journalists and Authors gives a sense of the 2014 conference.

Attendance is limited to 80 experienced writers, to allow for high-level discussions, small-group sessions, and meaningful networking. Registration is now full, but we have a waiting list. The fee is $275, with an early bird rate of $250 before September 15.
