Last chance to save $100 on our annual narrative conference

A number of you have taken us up on our Lab-readers-only offer to save $100 on registration for the upcoming Nieman Conference on Narrative Journalism. It’ll be held here in Boston March 20-22, which is the weekend after next. Lots of great speakers, from Adam Hochschild to Gwen Ifill to Jon Lee Anderson to Amy Harmon to Richard Koci Hernandez.

But your time is running out! The deadline for registration is tomorrow, March 11. In other words: Hustle!

If you head back to my last post, there’s still time to get that discount. But don’t come crying to me in a week, begging for a Lab Special. I will laugh at your tears.

Joshua Benton is the senior writer and former director of Nieman Lab. You can reach him via email ( or Twitter DM (@jbenton).
