What does storytelling look like?

It was about four years ago that I became particularly grumpy over the use of the word "storytelling" by those who do not actually tell stories. Writers and singers and actors had always described themselves as storytellers, but suddenly in business articles and on Twitter and in the blogosphere suddenly everyone from advertisers to life coaches to film editors to game designers were calling what they did storytelling.

And I'll admit it's an imprecise word.

But I decided to do…

Breaking the Eggs: Storyteller or Story?

Over at my other blog, I ask the question: which do prefer, a great storyteller telling a not-so-great story, or a great story told a not so great storyteller?

Storytellers Caught on Video!

Seeing storytellers appear in online video isn't necessarily new... but with so many video sharing sites and so many online video formats, there was never one place to see storytellers tell their stories online.

Even the YouTube storytelling channel, a well-kept secret for many years (you'd think that after Google bought YouTube, that Google might be able to FIND a channel on its own property to list in its search… Continue

Sorry! I forgot and it is important… In case you share the photo titled "El sabor de la hierbabuena", the name of the photographer is the organization I worked for: FUNDACIÓN TRES CULTURAS DEL MEDITERRÁNEO. (It is the only photo I have at this moment from Fundación Tres Culturas del Mediterráneo.)

Thanks again!

I´m glade you liked my photos! You can share them, but please:

Always write my name as storyteller: Esther de Juglaría. And, when it is specified, the name of the photographer: Sergio Pulido.

Yurts are great - specially when they have fairy lights and candles. Milgi's yurt is in the yard behind a city centre bar, and it's full of sofas and armchairs. Sooo comfy. Kasper was our first international teller. Would you like to be our second?!! I'd love to hear you tell. Cat x

My post on Storytelling conferences and recording was completely inspired by you and I of course completly forgot to say thank-you .

So Thanks - for the inspiration!

PS: I didn't site you as the source of my inspiration in the hopes that the apparent unconnected nature might feel like a rising instead of just a conspearacy.

Hi Tim,
May I quote your question about "Scottish Folktales Collected by Duncan Williamson" in the next issue of North Carolina Storytelling Guild's quarterly publication - "Journal of Tar Heel Tellers?" If I receive your permission, I would like to proceed by asking permission to publish another individual's response.

I live in the US and love the way the UK look at copyright, particularly toward folklore.

Thanks for your question and keep 'em coming!
