Forward Slash Story


FORWARD/STORY (Forward Slash Story) is a by-application 3 day residential lab that takes place in different locations around the world each year. In 2014 we ran a lab at The Hamptons, USA, and in 2015 we held the lab in Nosara, Costa Rica, May 15, 16, 17 & 18th. It is a special lab for writers and designers who work in uncharted territories to share their journey, techniques, socialize, collaborate, and solve problems.

The lab is co-founded and directed by myself and Lance Weiler. It is supported with sponsorship from Columbia University Digital Storytelling Lab, and in 2014 by Squarespace.
