Our first destination in this course is Story.
Most storytellers will admit that they come to their practice with question, that asking questions is how we find stories, that by responding to questions, we tell stories. The question we’ll start with and return to during this piece of our trip is:
Why do we tell stories?
Over the course of the next 3 weeks, we’ll be developing multiple responses to this question, both independently and together. We’ll also question the question, and ask related questions. At the end of this piece of our trip, you’ll write a blog post with your reflections on the why of storytelling. Throughout the trip, you’ll be reading, reflecting, and practicing storytelling.
