Telling your story is where the rubber hits the road. Numbers alone are not enough to make your case or move people to action. You have to give your data some context, and stitch it together into a narrative so that people can understand it. 

In this workshop we will sketch a story with WordCounter to practice communicating a data-driven story visually, then make a Word Web to move from abstract ideas and numbers into concrete visual symbols. And finally, remix an Infographic to practice telling the same story in different ways. You will how to use data both with numerics and words to communicate the whole picture.
