Reviews - What do our customers think?
Storytelling for Writers  Sep 28, 2003
Storytellers who also strive to be writers will do well to read this book. It helps you to decide what stories you might want to write, and how to take your audience, the reader, into consideration in making the selection. From character creation to structure planning, this is a basic guide to presenting stories that will entertain. It is also a very suitable primer for beginning fiction writers of any genre.
 
An uninformed, unhelpful book  Apr 12, 1999
This book, which has somehow been sent all over the world in the form of desk copies (I received 2!), was not written by a storyteller, and its contents indicate that, though the author had done some research, it was all in his office. It lacks any sense of practical application to the real teller of tales. It seems methodical and logical, but ultimately, the information is not based on practical research or practice. There are several excellent books on storytelling. This book, written by a freelance author, can only be seen as a book which seeks to capitalize on the currrent growing popularity of the art form. It is not helpful to the would-be storyteller. It is even less helpful to intermediate or advanced tellers. Save your money and purchase something that is worthwhile.
