Digital Storytelling: Capturing Lives, Creating Communities
Digital Storytelling: Capturing Lives, Creating Community
by Joe Lambert
4th Edition, 2013
Published by Routledge
Paperback Price: $36.95
Listen deeply. Tell stories. This is the mantra of the Center for Digital Storytelling which, since 1998 has worked with nearly 1,000 organizations around the world and trained more than 15,000 people in the art of digital storytelling.
In this revised and updated edition of the Center's popular guide to digital storytelling, co-founder Joe Lambert details the history and methods of digital storytelling practices. Using a "7 Steps" approach, Lambert helps storytellers identify the fundamentals of dynamic digital storytelling--from seeing the story, assembling it, and sharing it. As in the last edition, readers of the fourth edition will also find new explorations of the applications of digital storytelling and updated appendices that provide resources for budding digital storytellers, including information about past and present CDS-affiliated projects and place-based storytelling, a narrative-based approach to understanding experience and landscape. A companion website further brings the entire storytelling process to life.
Over the years, the Center's work has transformed the way that community activists, educators, health and human services agencies, business professionals, and artists think about story, media, culture, and the power of personal voice in creating change. For those who yearn to tell multimedia stories, Digital Storytelling is the place to begin.
The book is frequently used as a textbook by educators seeking to teach digital storytelling as a part of a curriculum, or as supplemental material for anyone who has taken a CDS workshop, but it is also meant to be accessible for anyone who is curious about the uses and methodology of digital storytelling.
This new edition of the book is published and distributed by Routledge.

In all communities, in all cultures, stories evolve from the culinary experience. Making media, like making a meal, requires guidance, learning from our friends through the sharing of recipes, and expertise from those who spend their professional lives in the kitchen. The Digital Storytelling Cookbook shares our experience, some recipes, and some humor, to help readers get started with their own storytelling experiences.
