Professional Storyteller

Share a Story - Change the World

To see a list of the next year of Storytelling Magazine topics, See the NSN Board blog and view Sherry Norfolk's latest post. If you have an idea for an article on one of the topics, you can either leave a message for Sherry or contact the editor of that issue.

To make comments about anything on the board blogs, switch over to the Forum and sign in. Join a discussion already in progress or make your own thread.

Like the NSN Conference, Storytelling Magazine is the result of a lot of interesting people getting together and sharing ideas. Help make it great!

The editor of each issue makes decisions about what to include. The audience is over 2000 members and affiliates who receive the magazine (plus others who read it in libraries). We're working through online options, but for now it's hard copy by mail.

nce again. Thanks. I have served as chair of Brimstone for two years and have learned MUCH. I think that is why they asked me to do this issue. You would be surprised at the diversity of the projects. Through this avenue, I have learned so much about what is "happening" across the US and in other countries. I am amazed at the types of projects that have been submitted. Almost one half of the projects submitted have not been NSN members and have become new members. So, by sharing we have an outreach project.

Dear Ann:

If you labeled it "Brimstone Projects--Comments From Those Who Know"--then it would work. You may consider starting your own blog post on the subject though linking to this specific blog on "Storytelling Magazine upcoming issues".

Then send an announcement through the Applied Storytelling Group and also your online friends. Encourage all past and current Brimstone recipients to have a profile on Professional Storyteller. Get Steve Evans on your side. Build the excitement. Be good at using links.

Here is the link I know for Brimstone.

Until we tell again,

Thanks Rachel. I have a list of all of the Brimstone winners and will contact all of them. I also have a list of the people who have submitted grants during the 3 years that I have been on the committee. I wanted to hear from some of you who have become familar with storytelling and the Brimstone projects. I think I would like to do a Comments From Those Who Know...What do you think?

Dear Ann:

I would connect with foundations that have similar goals as the National Storytelling Network and/or to the specific projects promoted through Brimstone.

Perhaps you could list the specific projects of Brimstone to help in the brainstorming.

For example, there is the Surdna Foundation that I became aware of thanks to Sherry Norfolk.

Until we tell again,

Once again, this is a forward step to planning for the future. The NSN board is not sitting still, but is thinking of ways to stay connected. By asking us to serve over a year in advance, we are able to plan and ask and encourage. And it gives each of the members a chance to contribute and idea or suggestion to us now. I assure you that though the Brimstone issue is a year away, I have already begun thinking and would welcome ideas and comments from those of you who have experienced being a part of any grant or writing a grant. Any comment is a way of helping all of us come togther.

Sean, I agree that the guest editors work very well. Each issue is a unique creation of the editor. Tim Tingle's was one of my favorites.

Congratulations! I am glad I could help.

Until we tell again,

Thank you for your suggestion and your help, Rachel. I put in the links as you requested and I will use links in the that I know how!

Remember to make use of links so people don't have to copy and paste or even re-type the address to get the list of upcoming issues.

So. . .here is the link for the upcoming issues.

Until we tell again,

One of the "thumbs up" things for me from the NSN is the "guest editor" concept of the magazine. We need to get to online versions,but I see you are working on it. Very good!
