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.
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’.
Series: In search of a Storytelling grid. Initiated after a conversation on WWSW with Cynthia Kurtz. Start with the intro and work your way from there. Two special things happened here – the contributions by Allan Davies and others and my attempt to sketch some illustrations. Intro, Part I, Part II, Part III, Part IV, Part V – utterance, Part VI – witness, Part VII – storywork, Part VIII – skills.
Series: How to become a better storyteller – G’s voyage was a long one and you’ll find all the links here.
