tell a story, reap a wisdom

Successful Storytelling

In September 2013, I attended Singapore International Storytelling Festival. I also joined a 'successful storytelling' class that taught by Len Cabral, an international professional storyteller.  

This is my note from successful storytelling class. Enjoy!


Room setup

 - Make the audience closer.

-  This is the ideal position. No more younger children tired because they looked at the older children. (learn to be a good audience)

       -          Or make them like this





When telling stories
-          Eye contact’s need
-          You need to build (Engagement, entertainment, aducation)
-          Find the stories
-          And practice it.
-          

      We don't need to move highly 
-          If just a little audience, prefer without microphone
-          Start and finish should be powerful!
-          For young audience, we can use participation
-          Make it happen! à funny-scary-surprising!

We are the one who know the stories! 

The ideal duration to tell one stories
3-5 years                          : 15 minutes
Ideal for all age                 : less than 45 minutes


How about story from parents? How to tell it?
Parents don't need to use a dramatic performance. Because the children just wanna hear your story.


As a storyteller, we've to read a lot. We can build our own stories.
