From Audience to Zeal: The Workbook
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

Teasing the Fall/Spring Line Up
Oh! Have we got some good books coming soon for you! Let’s see now, there are at least 3 books for kids and big kids, one really nice work on the art of oral storytelling, a collection of off-kilter folktales. We’re making some editorial decisions about two more how-to books and we’re talking to new potential authors all this month. Along with new authors, we have two new illustrators who are bringing their time and talent to our upcoming books. You just have to keep your eyes open for fresh works, coming soon.
So! Add yourself to the mailing list over on that >>>> side of the website and we’ll keep you in the loop!
Ok! Fine, here’s a teaser of one of the new illustrations from one of the big-kids’ books. Think the moon over the Sonoran desert. . .
