The Future of Storytelling- StoryMOOC Inspirational Week -Chapter 4

This chapter has different recommendations and inspirations, from guest lecturers on materials and books to read for a deeper understanding on storytelling and different media for storytelling. I am very new to storytelling and these books might not apply to me (but who knows) but it will be good to have a reference when the need arises. The sources below were mentioned in the videos and can be found on The Future of Storytelling website.

I really enjoyed Michael Straeubig course in Chapter 6, on location-based storytelling and augmented reality, which I reviewed in Part 1 and Part 2. Being new in the art of storytelling, I would get this book by “Boyd, Brian, on the Origin of Stories: Evolution, Cognition, and Fiction”. Another book which caught my interest is– “Queneau,  Raymond (1961): Cent mille milliards de poèmes. Paris: Gallimard”– something about a hundred thousand billion poems! Though not in English, I just love the way the book is structured and designed.
