Episode description

Episode preview

In the lead-up to our Book Passage Morocco event with Erin Byrne and Deep Travel's Christina Ammon and Anna Elkins next Friday, 12/7, I talked with NPR storyteller and Emmy-nominated writer Doug Cordell about the art of storytelling, including what he taught on a workshop in Morocco - and what he learned from a legendary traditional Moroccan storyteller.

Doug Cordell’s true-life radio stories air on NPR’s Snap Judgment and APM's Marketplace. He delivers talks and workshops on the Power of Storytelling, and is a member of the Writers Guild of America with a Master of Fine Arts degree in Dramatic Writing. Doug’s television credits include PBS, Disney and Nickelodeon.
