Speak Up Storytelling

Mar 16, 2021

On episode #113 of the Speak Up Storytelling podcast, Matthew and Elysha Dicks are back, talking storytelling!

In our follow up segment, we discuss new content on our Patreon page and upcoming shows and workshops.

In our Homework for Life segment, Matt talks about the way that Homework for Life can help illuminate a story that took years to complete. 

Next we listen to a story by Donna Shubrooks.  

Amongst the many things we discuss include:

  1. Humor strategies in storytelling

  2. Dispensing information without leaving the confines of the story 

  3. Spooling

  4. Openings 

  5. Avoiding describing scenes after the fact

Next we answer questions about subtle stories and storytelling introductions.  

Lastly, we each offer a recommendation.
