How to Tell Stories When Everyone's a Storyteller

In a desire to tell “authentic” stories, we sometimes feel pressured to say everything in its entirety. However, a tell-all doesn’t necessarily lend itself to authenticity or good storytelling. Panelists Cass Jewell, Joe Porter, Erin Feldman, and Mason Ballard will discuss how editing isn’t at odds with authenticity during their session—in fact, editing could be the very thing that gets to the truths buried in the details and helps stories stand out when everyone's telling them.
