Speak Up Storytelling

Oct 5, 2020

On episode #104 of the Speak Up Storytelling podcast, Matthew and Elysha Dicks are back, talking storytelling!

In our follow up segment, we discuss our absence, talk about upcoming shows, Speak Up merchandise, and workshops, all online!



In our Homework for Life segment, Matt talks about seeking contrast when finding stories in our lives. 

Next we listen to a story by John DeMeo. 

Amongst the many things we discuss include:

  1. The power of nostalgia  

  2. Dialogue as description

  3. Suspense and secrets

  4. Eliminating process language 

  5. Reframing stories depending on time and goals

Next we answer a questions about living with Matt and the structure of children's books. 

Lastly, we each offer a recommendation.
