Enhance Your Learning!
Coming along after the original textbook, Laura S. Packer has a new WORKBOOK (at 92 pages!) companion volume to go with the original A to Z book! It’s a journal, it’s a guidebook, it’s a way to move from idea to implementation.
Designed to be a companion volume to “From Audience to Zeal: The ABCs of Finding, Crafting, and Telling a Great Story,” this workbook contains deep reflections, focused advice, intriguing readings, and active projects that will take your experiences in storytelling and oral communication to the next level. This workbook contains additional materials not found in the book.
Praise for the Workbook!
Laura has created a working text, a highly practical and useful book that is personal, powerful, and poignant. She captures in words and exercises what we need to do and hear. Using it will only improve your work in story. -Kevin Cordi, Ph.D., Assistant Professor, Ohio University Lancaster; International Storytelling SIG Chair, National Council of Teachers of English

Another quote from our new “Storyteller’s Journal #1.”
The graphic reads:
“I think you should know that sound, eye contact, energy
level, expressions, body language and content create
a world. Out of balance they create a half place,
one so awkward the listeners’ attention may wander away.”
The quote was contributed by Angela R. Hunt.
The Write-In Journal for the Oral Storyteller
Storyteller, who are you? What should you know? What is your place in the world’s oral storytelling traditions?
Dozens of Thought-Provoking Comments and Questions
We asked oral storytellers from around the world to answer the question, “What should storytellers know about the art and craft of storytelling?” You’ll find many of their responses in this write-in journal. In addition to the 30+ comments and 20 focused questions, you’ll find some blank pages for you to generate your own thoughts and ideas.
