Guided Tour

This blog has been through quite a bit. It changed as I moved along and will continue to change. To help you grasp what you might find here, I’ve compiled a guided tour. Nevertheless, you can bypass the tour, hit the archives page and use the search box.

Conversations I find timely

Storytelling evolution? A conversation initiated with Gregg Morris who decided to pick up the glove and drill-down into some difficult issues around the perception of storytelling. Be prepared for a very long read.

Striding towards storytelling mastery – an interview with Brother Wolf, The Art of Storytelling Show.

Storylistening and the ability to review performance – a conversation between my younger daughter and myself after visiting ‘Beyond the Border’ Wales international storytelling festival with many interesting comments by storytellers

However narrative and storytelling are defined, people know them when they “feel” them. Yes? No? Another conversation initiated with Gregg Morris and continued with Bill Wren, trying to clear definitions around ‘story’ and ‘storytelling’.
