Articles, Resources, & Tools for Storytellers

 

A STO•RY•TELL•ER is someone who tells stories. This can be orally, visually, written, or in a variety of other ways.

 

Posts “for storytellers” are going to look at the writing craft and its role in the world and storytelling. Not only will they address writing itself, but also:

  • our personal and professional need for it;
  • how it helps us to understand the world;
  • our psychological and philosophical need for it;
  • what is typically ignored in writing; and
  • current trends in writing practices.
