Publisher's description: Books and magazines are changing. Reading is changing. The Brooklyner believes that the relevant power of social networking is its rhythm of descriptions and accounts, which form the basis of storytelling. We want to be part of those cadences, inclusive of technology, inspired by the pervasive appetite for narrative.
The Brooklyner is a team of collaborators with diverse experience—writers, editors, actors, filmmakers, artists—inviting creatives to present stories with whatever they’ve got. We call it mediatelling. Imagine a narrative and use a computer, a camera, a smartphone, a microphone, to aptly communicate that story.
We publish free web issues four times a year, while updating the site on an ongoing basis. Downloading past issues offers the best sense of what we publish.
