In today's career chat, we talked with Joe Donnelly, executive editor of Mission and State -- a site that aims to deliver "powerful, deeply reported, richly experienced narratives" from Santa Barbara, Calif. The site features investigative and explanatory journalism delivered on multimedia platforms.

During the chat, Donnelly talked about how narratives are told now, how journalists can grow their narrative skills, and where they can get published. Donnelly is the founding publisher and co-editor of the longform journal Slake: Los Angeles and was the deputy editor of LA Weekly.
