The Stats & the Story: Amy O'Leary and Trent Dalton in conversation (Brisbane)

One of Queensland’s best-loved writers will draw out Amy O’Leary on the art and science of storytelling in the age of viral sharing and audience analytics.

Storyology headliner Amy O’Leary is leading Upworthy’s new editorial strategy, championing resonant storytelling over empty clickbait. Having previously worked at the New York Times, including on their famous Innovation Report, Amy’s leading the worldwide discussion about where our industry is heading, and how we can interpret the data for better reporting. What can the latest tools for measuring how readers engage, teach us about being better storytellers?

This is a free event, but you must register by Thursday, Nov. 5.
