Here are the best online resources (advice, how-tos, etc.) I’ve found to date on nonprofit storytelling. I’ll post nonprofit examples later.
From Andy Goodman
Andy has some fabulous advice on how nonprofits can use storytelling.
— Watch Andy’s webinar for ReadyTalk on “Storytelling: Your Most Powerful Communications Tool” or a video of a keynote address he gave to California housing group. The webinar includes the slides; the video doesn’t. The presentation appears to be the same.
— Listen to the mp3 of another presentation he gave on storytelling for good causes.
— From his newsletter, Seven Questions to Sharpen Your Stories and 10 Immutable Laws of Storytelling.
From Katya Andresen
— An mp3 of How to Tell Your Story: Tips for Better Storytelling, Fundraising Success and Media Glory (here’s the transcript) and a much shorter how-to article based on the presentation.
From Nancy Schwartz
— An article called Put Persuasive Storytelling to Work for Your Nonprofit
From the W.K. Kellog Foundation Communications Toolkit
— An article on storytelling with links to additional resources.
This post is part of my participation in Michele Martinâ??s Blogging4Learning Challenge. Iâ??m blogging to learn more about how nonprofits can use storytelling in nonprofit marketing and communications.
