This work references Stephen Crites’s “The Narrative Quality of Experience” which is what set me on the path to story in one of Dr. Edward St. Clair’s religion classes in the late 60s.
Why Narrative? Readings in Narrative Theology
This is Dr. Stanley Hauerwas’s work. After talking to Dr. St. Clair early last summer about story, he guided me to Dr. Hauerwas, who teaches at Duke, right around the corner so to speak.
Theology of Narrative or Narrative Theology?: A Response to Why Narrative?
This is an interesting take on Dr. Hauerwas’s work.
Group Process Consulting
Annette Simmons’s site (The Story Factor, Whoever Tells the Best Story Wins). There are some wonderful resources available here. In my estimation, she is, quite simply, the best. She lives about 45 minutes away. It would seem that I am lucky enough to be surrounded by great storytellers!
Doug Lipman’s site. It’s a little late 90s in look but the man knows “story”.
Story Colored Glasses
Cynthia Kurtz’s site. I’ve just discovered her. She brings some science to bear on “story”. Reading her is also challenging me to think about story in some different ways. That’s likely a good thing.

Dr. Kathy Hansen’s wonderful site full of great storytelling advice and posts. I have no idea how I missed this one first time around. Glad to have found her now though. A great resource.
This is the site for Michael Margolis’s new book on storytelling. I haven’t read it yet but it’s starting to get wonderful reviews. You can download a free excerpt too. (I have read that.)
100 Digital Storytelling Tools for Your Digital Selves + Natives
This is the first of four parts. A very nice resource for digital storytelling tools.
I hope that the rest of these will provide you with some ideas and guidance in your storytelling as well. The titles, for the most part, will give you a good idea about the content that they offer. I plan on updating this page regularly with new resources. I’ve also enabled comments so please don’t hesitate to speak your mind about any and all of these.
A Story Before Bed
This is a great site from the folks at Jackson Fish Market. If you have young children, or if you’re a grandparent, you’ll be glad that you visited it.
