The Editor’s Blog - Narrative Modes In Fiction
Ben Franklin once said, “Either write something worth reading or do something worth writing.”
Whether you are reading a story, writing one, or living your life, we are all constantly involved in the creation and dissemination of stories. It does not even matter if you are good at it; what matters is that you enjoy it (we all get better with practice).
Not all of us are natural born storytellers. That’s why its a good idea to learn a bit more about how storytelling works. It does not matter if you use a pen, camera, Wacom tablet or anything between, we are all constantly telling our stories in one form or another. (Just don’t design roller coasters and call yourself a storyteller or Sagmeister might make a video to spite you).
This post is about writing (and storytelling in general), and specifically about who is doing the telling.
Beth Hill has put together a useful place for better understanding writing for storytelling. In this post she discusses narrative point of view, narrative tense, narrative voice and other writing elements to help tell your stories. OPD gives this blog the seal of approval.

We are very grateful to our new friend Nev (No Entry Design), for all the support and contact with Livestream Public who gave us the opportunity to paint this mural at the corner of Morgan Ave & Stagg St. If you’re around, come and see it in person.
