Storytelling resources

Pixar’s 22 rules of storytelling

This weekend I had the honor of giving a graduate student class at the Bronx Zoo about how biomimicry and storytelling can inform social change. One of the students asked about storytelling resources I recommend and I thought I would share my go-to resources here with you:

Pixar
I take a lot of inspiration from Pixar’s work. This Khan Academy class is free, helpful, and created by the Pixar team: https://www.khanacademy.org/computing/pixar/storytelling
Additionally, this is a great infographic created by a story artist from Pixar and depicts their 22 rules for storytelling: https://mastersreview.com/tips-pixars-22-rules-of-storytelling/

Storyteller and Mythologist John Bucher
John Bucher is my close personal friend and writing mentor. He’s a phenomenal storyteller and he has a lot of resources on his website, a newsletter, a podcast, and several books on the art of storytelling. He’s had an enormous impact on my work and life.

Story Gatherings
Story Gatherings is a community I belong to. They have a conference about storytelling every year that happens online and in-person in Nashville. https://storygatherings.com/
