On episode #75 of the Speak Up Storytelling podcast, Matthew and Elysha Dicks talk storytelling!
In our follow up segment, we discuss last week's book launch event. We also direct listeners to our new Soundcloud account and Matt's updated YouTube channel. We also ask listeners to help solve a problem.
STORYTELLING SHOWS 2019-2020
STORYTELLING WORKSHOPS 2019-2020
In our Homework for Life segment, we talk about an unexpected reaction to jury duty and how that might become a story. We also talk about ways to avoid overcomplicating a story.
Next we listen to a story by Joey Meyer.
Amongst the many things we discuss include:
Saying big, important things by telling the story of a small, brief, encounter
Outstanding openings and the power of perpetuating a mystery throughout the story
Sliding details about location seamlessly into the narrative
Effective sentence structure
Next we answer questions from listeners about storytelling for job interviews and how writers can transfer what they do from the page to the stage.
Lastly, we each offer a recommendation.
