This page shares resources for my workshop “Stories Told Live,” and for other storytellers searching for tools and opportunities.
Check out my Storytelling Pinboard (you do not need a Pinterest account), where I add interesting articles and other stuff regularly. This one article stands out as being especially interesting, though: “You Talkin’ to Me: How Stories Work at the Moth” by Catherine Burns
- Finding Your Voice by Jen Lee. A workshop in a book that navigates a path through the obstacles that keep us from telling our stories.
- Radio, An Illustrated Guide by Ira Glass and Jessica Abel. A comic book that breaks down the elements of a “This American Life” episode, with some great explorations of what makes a story work.
- Telling Your Story by Jen Lee. This CD and workbook take you on a personal storytelling journey, helping you develop a story inventory and hone your craft.
- The Storytelling Animal by Jonathan Gottschall. A theory of why we tells stories.
