9780874835304: Improving Your Storytelling: Beyond the Basics for All Who Tell Stories in Work and Play (American Storytelling)

The first steps in storytelling are often easy, because we tell stories informally every day. Once you take storytelling into the more formal contexts of performance or occupational uses, however, you may be faced with challenges you hadn't anticipated. You need information that goes beyond the basics. And you need it in a form that does not just tell you what to do but helps you make your own informed decisions. This book is meant for the reader who has already begun to tell stories and is ready to learn more about the art. Instead of rules to follow, it gives you a series of frameworks that encourage you to think on your feet. Doug Lipman has written and taught extensively on the art of storytelling. With the same generosity and warmth that characterize his workshops, he considers the teller's relationship to the story, the teller's relationship to the audience, and the transfer of imagery in a medium that is simultaneously visual, auditory, and kinesthetic.

From Publishers Weekly:

Aspiring storytellers will be pleased to know that Lipman's down-to-earth approach allows for flexibility rather than an emphasis on memorization. A professional storyteller who has appeared at such prominent venues as the National Storytelling Festival, he presents a thoughtful framework that can apply to anyone whose livelihood depends on keeping an audience rapt, including lawyers, teachers and salespeople, although his remarks are more specifically tailored to performing artists. Advising the would-be speaker to "think in the present" when performing, Lipman articulates basic concepts in the use of oral language (tone of voice always prevails over meaning, he says) and of imagery and gestures. He believes that retelling a story informally many times helps the speaker determine what is most meaningful about it--a connection he terms the Most Important Thing (MIT), since he firmly believes that a story's meanings flow from the speaker's MIT. In addition to a sensitive discussion of how to build a relationship with an audience, he also focuses on the importance of warm-up techniques, including the use of a "healing yawn" to reduce tension and get an oxygen boost, and numerous anti-anxiety techniques. The best result? In storytelling as in life, one must "combine the knowledge of how to work toward transformation with the patience to let it happen out of your control." (June)

From Library Journal:

The ancient tradition of storytelling connects all generations and cultures. Storyteller Lipman identifies the art, mission, and impact of this most treasured folk practice. Not everyone can tell a good storyAit takes practice to develop expressions, voice control, timing, hand movements, style, imagery, and other details that enhance or detract from a good tale-telling session. Lipman, who has taught many of today's professional storytellers, aims his book at those who have begun to try their wings at local events and in situations that require more experience. His instructions do not tell you how to tell a good story, but provide the methods and reasons to allow you to make your own quick judgments and decisions. All kinds of audiences are considered, from preschool children to senior citizens, and sample stories are studied for content analysis and presentation suggestions. This volume belongs in all libraries for the storytelling staff as well as for patrons who want to learn the art of exciting narration.ARichard K. Burns, MSLS, Hatboro, PA
