Dear Colleagues,For your consideration in your conference planning:AOM Live Showcase Symposium: The Art of Storytelling in Academic WritingSession 388 – Saturday, July 31 3:30-5:00 ET
Storytelling is what we do in every article, book chapter, and book we write; in every presentation we give; and in every class we teach. Data does not speak for itself; it is the authors' job to ensure readers understand and accept the importance of their research question, set the context for interpreting their findings, and frame the results in ways that give them meaning and lead readers to interpret them as the authors intend. However, too little attention is often given to the "art" of how we tell our research stories. Please join our distinguished panel of accomplished storytellers to discuss how they use the structures, tools, and techniques of storytelling to enhance their writing.
