South Bay Writers Speaker Series
Monday, April 10, 2017
by Danni Burton
What compels us to keep reading or to keep listening? Is storytelling an “art”?
Danni Burton, the Scottish storyteller, believes it is. And, 103 ordinary people became storytellers and published authors in her first two books of inspirational short stories.
On April 10, Danni will invite us to explore our timing, reasons and goals, and potential audience for our unique and special stories. She will cover the importance of compelling beginnings, surprises, shifts, humor, and metaphors, as well as words that build rapport throughout your writing and bringing your story out to the world.
Today, she is a mentor for families and other vintage folks writing their memoirs and stories. And, she is collecting stories from youth from 9 to 19 for her upcoming third book.
Danni shares ideas and inspiration from her 35 years as a speaker, trainer, career coach, graphologist, and Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) trainer. And, she is always happy to introduce her first two books: My Life, My Story, My Legacy: Vintage Wit and Wisdom and Their Lives, Their Stories, Their Legacies: More Wit and Wisdom.
Please join us on April 10 at Harry’s Hofbrau to learn how she creates compelling stories.
