What does it look like to craft riveting, people-centered stories?

She’s produced over 3,400 hours of live television at CNN, written over 500 scripts for Anderson Cooper, produced documentaries for PBS, and she’s covered some of the biggest stories of the past decade. 

Join us for a conversation with Nora as we discuss what it takes to break into journalism, how to create compelling narratives through digital shorts, news, documentaries, and podcasts, and how she makes a living as a freelance writer.

We’ll also discuss:

  • Her approach to ethical journalism

  • How to explore challenging issues in your storytelling

  • The world of graphic novels 

  • Processing trauma through storytelling
