Nieman Conference

Today will be day two of the Nieman Conference on Narrative Journalism in Boston, Ma. The conference's attendees include Pulitzer Prize winning journalist Dele Olojede, Roy Peter Clark, Mark Kramer, the St. Petersburg Times' Stephen Buckley and so many more.

Sessions discuss topics like getting published, navigating complex reporter-editor relationships, covering uncovered angles in overcovered stories and writing about children -- just to name a few. Wish you were here? If so, I'll do my best to recap some of the highlights of this gathering.

Before I report back, however, I should make mention of how genuinely pleasant everyone at the conference is. At first it caught me off guard. Now it's wonderful. Who said journalists were egotistical and isolated?
