Dear Friends at MACAA and in the Charlottesville/Virginia Nonprofit Community,
Thank you so much for the opportunity to be with you this week to talk about how storytelling can serve your professional, organizational, and community development endeavors.
As much discussed, here’s a list, in no short or specific order, of places to keep leveling in story work. Thanks so much for attending a StoryMuse training, and I hope we can stay in touch!
STORYMUSE CASE STUDY EXAMPLES
Some of you expressed a specific interest in diving deeper into some of the storytelling projects and models we surveyed in our workshops together…
Thanks to those of you who were interested to have my presentation slides. A note on them: This is frankly not my strong suit, and I was toggling back and forth between a few of them at times. Feel free to ask any questions or let me know if there’s something you are missing or don’t understand.
STAY IN TOUCH!
I would be delighted to continue to be in relationship with you and your organization(s) in any number of capacities. I hope we’ll be in touch about that. However, if you would like to talk about a personal/professional development opportunity, let’s talk. (Often you can get your organization to pay for this kind of professional development.)
I also produce a monthly newsletter with blog posts, event announcements, and aggregated articles from the field. You can subscribe here.
LISTEN / WATCH
If you are a podcast junkie like I am, you’re always looking for recommendations. Here are a few of mine!
These are my favorite books that have to do with the art & brain science of storytelling.
