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.
