Read our “Storytelling Summer” series in the Chronicle of Philanthropy
This summer, read about story strategy in the Chronicle of Philanthropy, the #1 news source for the nonprofit world.
Check the Chronicle every Wednesday in July and August for a new blog post in a series called “Storytelling Summer,” in which Working Narratives’ managing director, Paul VanDeCarr, answers nonprofits’ biggest questions about “story strategy.”
So far this month, the series has included posts on how not to bore your listeners, how to balance short- and long-term communications strategy, and how to reach new audiences.
Keep your eyes peeled to the “Storytelling Summer” page, where you’ll find new posts every Wednesday through Labor Day! You’re welcome to submit your story-strategy question to paul [at] workingnarratives [dot] org.
In addition, we’ll keep up the schedule of original posts every Wednesday here on the Working Narratives blog.
