Narratively Seeks Storytellers Of All Media

Narratively

Narratively, the year-old New York-centric website, consists of writers, photographers and reporters who want to share in-depth human interest stories with the world.

The site values long form writing, and instead of sections or columns, they have weekly themes. As editorial director Brendan Spiegel says, “Our motto is: Any way you want to tell your story, we can do that.” All of the site’s content is generated by freelancers:

[The pub] has earned its reputation on the long-form text, [but] storytellers of all media are encouraged to pitch Narratively. Photo essays, short films, audio stories and comic boards are all game… In Narratively’s first comic text story, “The Real Mermaid,” an illustrator told a narrative non-fiction story about Coney Island’s Mermaid Parade.

For more details on pitching, read: How To Pitch: Narratively.

Neil Gaiman Vs. The Bully Web Comic

Inspired by Minnesota House majority leader Matt Dean‘s attack on author Neil Gaiman, Twitter sensation Evil Wylie created a web comic based on famous Charles Atlas ads.

Earlier this week, Dean criticized Minnesota’s House Legacy Funding Division for paying the novelist for a speaking engagement.  The legislator called the author  “pencil-necked little weasel who stole $45,000 from the state of Minnesota.”

Above, we’ve  embedded Wylie’s complete comic. What do you think?
