FOR THE RESOURCE SHELF: The Story Biz Handbook

Author and storyteller, Dianne de Las Casas has produced a truly remarkable resource book on managing your storytelling career from desk to stage. 

The work has 30 chapters full of useful tips and insights, plus additional appendices to answer just about any question a storyteller could have for moving from amateur to a career as a storyteller.

Chapter titles tease with just a  portion of the scope of each segment (here is just a sample):

  • In the Beginning
  • Working with Stories
  • Storytelling Issues
  • Preparing for Performance
  • Performing Stories
  • Mastering a Sound System
  • Establishing Your Storytelling Business
  • Setting Up Your Office
  • Managing Your Bookings
  • Defining Your Market
  • Creating an Image
  • Printed Promo with Pizzazz
  • Extending Your Visibility
  • Developing an Internet Presence
  • Networking to Success

Check your public library to see if they have it in their collection or order your own from the publisher ABC-CLIO or from Amazon.
