Storyworthy: Engage, Teach, Persuade, And Change Your Life Through The Power Of Storytelling

A five-time Moth GrandSLAM winner and bestselling novelist shows how to tell a great story - and why doing so matters. Whether we realize it or not, we are always telling stories. On a first date or job interview, at a sales presentation or therapy appointment, with family or friends, we are constantly narrating events and interpreting emotions and actions. In this compelling book, storyteller extraordinaire Matthew Dicks presents wonderfully straightforward and engaging tips and techniques for constructing, telling, and polishing stories that will hold the attention of your audience (no matter how big or small). He shows that anyone can learn to be an appealing storyteller, that everyone has something ?storyworthy? to express, and, perhaps most important, that the act of creating and telling a tale is a powerful way of understanding and enhancing your own life.Review?With candor, humility, and bust-a-gut humor, Matthew Dicks shares his storytelling secrets and leads you up the stairs to tell yours. He already knows that they?re gems.?- Nichole Bernier, author ofThe Unfinished Work of Elizabeth D. ?Holy moly! Matthew Dicks is right - every one of us has a story to tell. And whether onstage or on the page, this master of the craft pulls us into his world, entertaining, instructing, and inspiring with every word.?- Susan Gregg Gilmore, author ofLooking for Salvation at the Dairy Queen ?Offers countless tips, exercises, and examples to get you on your way to better stories. Anyone who wants to take the stage, become a better writer, or simply tell better stories at Thanksgiving will benefit fromStoryworthy.?- Jeff Vibes, filmmaker ?I laughed, gasped, took notes, and carried this book around like a dear friend - because that?s exactly what a storyworthy book should be. As a novelist, I?ve studied my craft in countless ways, but never before have I seen its marrow revealed with such honest, approachable charisma. Matthew Dicks has written a perceptive companion for every person who has a story to tell - and don?t we all??- Sarah McCoy, internationally andNew York Times-bestselling author ofMarilla of Green Gables andThe Baker?s Daughter ?Matthew Dicks is a master storyteller and an incredible teacher. Most importantly, he is an artist who paints his verbal canvases with moments that change how his listeners see the world. Matt taught me about the hidden arc and architecture that lie behind every well-told story and I?ve incorporated his techniques into innumerable courtroom presentations - and told several stories before live audiences - all thanks to Matt.?- Ron Apter, trial lawyer ?When I gave Matthew Dicks a recurring spot on my podcast, I billed him as ?the most interesting man in the world.? He really has lived quite a life. But what?s truly interesting is not necessarily what he?s experienced but how he makes you, the audience, experience it through him.?- Mike Pesca, NPR contributor and host ofSlate magazine?s daily podcast,The Gist ?Learning from Matthew Dicks has truly been life changing both for me as a public storyteller and for my high school students. Matt?s practical advice and techniques can be applied immediately, and that?s what Matt encourages and inspires you to do. Start crafting your best stories right now: learn a little about yourself in the process and begin living a life ofyes.?- Jennifer Bonaldo, English teacher, Amity High School, Bethany, Connecticut ?Matthew Dicks is not only a master storyteller; he is a master teacher. His clear and detailed instructions allow him to brilliantly give his techniques and tricks of the storytelling trade to his students. I personally benefited immensely from Matt?s workshop, and I continue to use his techniques both in my professional work as a rabbi and teacher and onstage at Moth StorySLAMs.?- Rabbi Ira Ebbin, Congregation Ohav Sholom in Merrick, New York, and Moth StorySLAM winner ?I had the opport
