IAM Encounter 10: How Then Shall We Tell Stories?

I hope you enjoy this presentation of my visit to Encounter 10, the 2010 arts conference hosted by International Arts Movement.

This talk was my response to a question posed to me by the IAM team. I had the privilege of sharing thoughts in response to the question “How Then Shall We Tell Stories?” (This followed my ” IAM conversation” with the sensational Christy Tennant, which you can listen to here.)

It’s a variation on an evolving presentation that I’ve shared at Seattle Pacific University, Calvin College, Biola University, Northwestern College… and most recently The Glen Workshop (or “Glen West”, as the Santa Fe event is now called), where I expanded the presentation to almost an hour.

If you enjoy it, you’ll find many of these ideas and anecdotes in my book Through a Screen Darkly.

I’m disabling comments on this post (partly because my new book deadline is keeping me too busy to moderate comments promptly). But if you email your comments and questions to me at joverstreet@gmail.com, I’ll be glad to respond by email or in an upcoming “Ask Me Anything” post.

Oh, and by the way…

This is what I’m so busy finishing. You’ll find it in stores in March.
