The Art of Storytelling, A Cross-Cultural Experience
For writers, storytelling is the process of weaving language into a concrete narrative, with the purpose of creating rich, believable experiences. It is the interactive art of using words and actions to reveal the elements and images of a story while engaging the listener’s imagination.
In other words, storytellers don’t just relay facts: they use words in a way that the reader or listener can sit inside the story itself as though they were really there.

- Story telling crosses genres.
- Crosses cultures.
- And is its own art form.
