#StoryToGo is about inspiring ideas in Contemporary and Cross-Platform Storytelling!
This community is designed to reflect storytelling today – shared both through traditional means of oral storytelling, radio, film and TV, and print; in addition to newer forms of media storytelling through the digital arts, including gaming, blogging, online video, social media, and other forms of emerging media.
This digital space aims to share ideas, success stories, marketing implications, courses, new technologies, questions, jobs, thoughts and examples on all things story related.
In the process we hope to learn a little more about your story!
As for our story …
StoryToGo first came to fruition in 2013, when 3 media makers and educators – Kevin Ribble, Lori Yearwood, and Erica Hargreave – were brainstorming ways to connect current and past students in our media courses with the broader community of storytellers, technologists, and marketers, around conversations of contemporary storytelling and media in this digital age. At the beginning, the community was very focused around the Part Time Studies Media and Communication community at BCIT, but has broadened over the years to include other storytellers, technologists and educators, and to be more inclusive of global community in which we work.
Stay tuned for more detailed bios on Kevin, Lori, Erica, and some of the other storytellers, technologists, and educators that have begun to contribute to this community.
