What Is Unique about "How to Get Started as a Professional Storyteller"

At this point, you are wondering, “How and why can this E-book help me any more than any of the other books written about Storytelling?

Yes, I recommend many other books that are excellent and filled with great information. The main differences between my E-book and the others are:

  • Attitude. I know for a fact that no matter where you fit now, you have what it takes to become motivated, inspired and a SUCCESSFUL Storyteller. If I can believe in you, you can believe it too, and achieve it as long as you commit to taking the steps and investing the time and effort.
  • Experiences. You will live my experiences and the experiences of the three well known Professional Storytellers I interviewed for the book.
  • Simple Truths. Rather than writing what I think you want to read and hear, I have written about the way it is - at least, in my opinion and the result of years of storytelling study. I have worked hard to focus on the basics - making complex ideas easy to grasp.
  • Personal Stories. You will find personal stories intertwined throughout. You will learn that stories add interest and are easily internalized and remembered. Stories reach into the hearts of our listeners and readers. They show them and us that we are human.

What It’s Like (Really) To Be a Professional Storyteller

  • Developing your unique style.
  • Who Else is doing this?
  • How much can you earn?
  • How many storytellers are needed this year and long term?
  • Are there any hot locations for storytellers?


Meet a Few Professional Storytellers - I interviewed three Professional Storytellers :
Dianne de Las Casas from Harvey, Louisiana, Donald Davis from Ocracoke Island off the North Carolina Coast, and Heather Forest from Huntington, New York.

The questions I asked each were:

  • How did you become a storyteller and then a professional storyteller?
  • What kind of schedule do you have?
  • What do you like most about being a professional storyteller?
  • Is there anything you don’t like about being a professional storyteller?
  • What are your biggest challenges as a professional storyteller?
  • Why do you continue being a professional storyteller?
  • What would you do differently if starting over as a professional storyteller?


Background and Training

Each of my interviewees had valuable, but not always "formal" storytelling training. Dianne's suggestion mirrored the thoughts of all: "I would recommend that every aspiring storyteller start by learning more about storytelling — read books about storytelling, join a guild, join a national organization like the National Storytelling Network, research the Internet, attend conferences, festivals, and workshops, and tell stories often, anywhere and everywhere you can."



Best Ways to Break In (short excerpt)

Many storytellers start either as volunteers or as part of their jobs — for example, teachers, librarians, ministers, rabbis, social workers, counselors, and read-aloud volunteers. Once they have decided, however, to become professional storytellers, they must commit to a high level of effort, study, and time devoted to practice.

Your Game Plan

The nine necessary steps you will need to take on your journey to becoming a Professional Storyteller.


Some final words: Storytelling has experienced a rebirth and resurgence during the past 35 to 40 years. Professional storytellers are in demand. There are professional storytellers performing all over the world on stages, in schools, at libraries, and at important events. It takes a lot more, however, than just loving to tell stories. It takes talent, discipline, uniqueness, preparation, tenacity, creativity, and integrity. Even though a good storyteller is always welcomed, a professional storyteller must also approach storytelling as a business if he or she wants to make a living.
