Surprise! I am happy to say that rumor of my demise are happily exaggerated.
This summer my dear friend, Hawaiian Storyteller and master festival organizer, Jeff Gere and I (Brother Wolf) are doing a micro tour from Ashville, NC to Yellow Springs, OH. I would like to invite you to attend our workshop on Marketing and Storytelling, Bringing Storytelling to Mainstream Audiences.
You can attend it in person or you can purchase a recording of it. The amazing Cynthia Changaris is hosting the workshop in her house on August 13th from Noon to 3 PM and we’ve got room for a few qualified, serious performers to learn how to successfully connect their hard-won material with American audiences. Call Me – Eric Wolf – if you can attend in person (937) 767-8696
Workshop Story – Bringing Storytelling to Mainstream Audiences
In this workshop Jeff & Eric will assume that you have the technical ability to create amazing performances and that you are seeking to be recognized for your great storytelling. We will present to you how you can create shows that will sell out night after night. OK, not every night. But we promise you a filled house on at least half your nights if you follow our advice. More to the point we have done it and we will show you how you can too. Jeff & Eric will not agree on every point, but we do agree that storytelling can rock the world—if you let it and if you are willing to do the work to understand how you can fulfill the needs of your audience. Act on our suggestions and they will love you!
The workshop is $50. If you want to come or know any storytellers in the area tell them about it. But, honestly, we just like to talk, and if you are going to drive yourself there and are willing to give us $5 who are we to say no? This is one of those magic moments when stars collide and world changes for the better.
Again call Me – Eric Wolf – if you can attend in person (937) 767-8696.
Thanks – but I am not driving to Louisville, KY that’s a long way!
Now I know you’re thinking that you can’t drive or fly all the way to Louisville, KY for a one-day workshop. Heck, 95% of the people receiving this email can’t drive to Louisville, Kentucky and half of those can’t get off work to drive anywhere. Many of you are going to the National Storytelling Conference in the beginning of August, leaving me to convince 2% that they should come.
What if I recorded it and you just stayed home and listened to it? Read more »

Over at the International Storytelling School I have been busy building a catalog of answers to the most interesting questions on the Art of Storytelling.
Most of the answers are private, available only to people who join the International Storytelling School as audience members for a donation of $15 a month. There donations have paid for new recording equipment and various other handy items that allow me to bring you the Art of Storytelling Podcast and Blog. Perhaps you would consider becoming a member and supporting the production of this show for pennies a day….
Here are a list of all the answers I have been laying out on the school website… Read more »
