I’ve been using a single question storytelling survey for a while. After receiving various interesting answers I’ve realized the question is too wide. So I’ve decided to try the other way round: asking a few questions that might help prompt a focused answer.
It would be nice to know where you come from, your main field of occupation/interest/title and which of the questions prompted the answer. So an answer could look something like this:
Israel, storyteller, Q4: <your answer>
If for some reason you wish to stay almost anonymous please send me your answer via email@example.com and I’ll upload it as an anonymous comment (I promise not to tell anyone who I got the mail from).
Questions concerning storytelling:
Q1: If you just walked out of a storytelling event you enjoyed and met a close friend who was interested in “how was it?” how would you describe the experience?
Q2: If you just walked out of a storytelling event you did not enjoy and met a close friend who was interested in “how was it?” what would you say in order to prevent him from attending the event?
Q3: If (oral) storytelling is the answer or remedy, what’s the question or problem?
Q4: What do you think storytellers are really good at?
Q5: Why would you try to persuade someone not to become a storyteller?
Q6: In (oral) storytelling, who do you think is more important – the storyteller, the listener or the story?
Thanking you in advance, Limor.
