Miami New Times – Spreading the Word
Sunday, November 19, 2017 @ 4:00 pm
300 NE Second Ave., Miami, Fl 33132 United States
Exactly 30 years ago, Miami New Times was born in a tiny office on South Beach. One of the aims of its founders was to publish long-form, narrative stories that would make a difference and provide a voice for the community. Surprise! It worked. Writers of magazine-length stories trained at the paper. They developed a variety of writing styles that –taken together –comprised a South Beach-inspired narrative form that spread far and wide. Join Miami New Times editors Chuck Strouse and Tim Elfrink, rapper and columnist Luther Campbell, and New Times alumni Jim DeFede and Ben Greenman for a discussion of the reporting, prose style, and storytelling acumen that created the South Beach style of storytelling.
