Cowbird is a community of storytellers, focused on a deeper, longer-lasting, more personal kind of storytelling than you’re likely to find anywhere else on the Web.

Annie manages content and a growing community of authors on Cowbird and she will talk about the project and how she left a job as an old-fashioned reporter to cultivate this community of storytellers from around the world. Cowbird’s short-term goal is to pioneer a new form of participatory journalism, grounded in the simple human stories behind major news events.”
