If you tell stories out loud, in front of an audience, whether around a campfire or in a classroom, at a board meeting, or in the car, you're a storyteller. Storytelling is part of the oral tradition. Tales are told-- which is why this section is part of the Performing Arts Directory. If you WRITE stories, you're a writer. Check out the Arts: Online Writing section. Yes, filmmakers and novelists and the creative folks in advertising are storytellers, too-- but they aren't performing artists. You'll find them listed elsewhere. Storytelling Performing Arts Arts.
