Springer Nature Storytellers is a unique program available to Springer Nature authors (read: have published with Springer, Nature, Macmillan Science and Education, Palgrave, BioMed Central or SpringerOpen brands) to harness the power of storytelling and increase exposure to their work within their field and beyond their scholarly circle.
Our storytelling events are an empowering opportunity for authors to talk about what they do and why it’s important to the public at large and we’re very excited to be bringing this live event to three conferences this fall:
American College of Surgeons Clinical Congress, October 16-20 in Washington, D.C.
Annual Meeting of the American Society of Criminology, November 16-19 in New Orleans, LA
The American Geophysical Union’s Fall Meeting, December 12-16 in San Francisco, CA
We want to hear your story! We’re looking for researchers with engaging stories that will leave their audience with a strong message (This podcast is one fantastic example of the type of storytelling we’re looking for). Stories may address:
-What inspired authors to become researchers
-Why a researcher studies his/her field
-What a researcher hopes to accomplish through his/her work
-A researcher’s most surprising finding(s)
-Obstacles overcome and surprise twists that led to new discoveries
-And anything else specific to your experience as a researcher!
If you would like to tell a five-to-ten minute story at one of these three meetings, in partnership with The Story Collider, please send a two-to-three-paragraph summary of your story idea to firstname.lastname@example.org and include the intended conference name in your subject line, e.g. “Story pitch for ACS meeting.” Please submit your story idea before the respective deadline: August 12th for the DC show, September 16th for the New Orleans show, and October 7th for the San Francisco show.
