Add Your Storytelling Project to the Wiki

We’re trying to create a place for people to cruise through projects, get ideas, learn from successes and failures, and simply feel like they don’t have to reinvent the wheel.

Add your current, past, or future storytelling project by:

  1. Create a profile here:
  2. Log in and join CoP here:
  3. Once you’ve logged in, in the black left column click “Posts”
  4. Then, “Add New”
  5. Create a blog-style entry that includes: The title of your project, your name, organization, contact info (email or Twitter handle), and quick synopsis of work.
  6. It doesn’t have to be scholarly writing! A few sentences is all that is necessary, or write until your heart is content! Post photos if you like as well! Remember, this is just for reference.
  7. In the right column, click the “Storytelling” category.
  8. Add descriptive tags that help people find your project.

>> Here’s our sample project. Check out MW and the Smithsonian’s crowdsourced community storytelling project.

The inside of a quaint cafe in Lanesboro, Minnesota
A cafe in Lanesboro, Minnesota, was the site of storytelling meeting where MW got to know people in the town and talked to them about the value of stories in their community. The storytelling group “Water Bar & Public Works Studio” out of Minneapolis acted as our guides and were the eyes and ears on the ground in Minnesota.
