Story Telling Art

“The goal is to share storytelling tools so each culture can speak with their unique voice, sharing the
message on their own terms.”

Introduction:
“The purpose of a storyteller is not to tell you how to think, but to give you questions to think upon.” Brandon Sanderson, The Way of Kings.
