How to Contact Doug Lipman

And My Priorities for Quick Response

Doug Lipman photoI'd love to hear from you!

Please note, though, that I receive hundreds of emails daily, and cannot respond in detail to all of them.

Therefore, I have established the following priority list:

Answer Priority List

  1. Emails about jobs I have already committed to;
  2. Emails from members of the Storytelling Workshop In a Box, The Beginning Storytelling Toolkit, other storytelling courses, or those whose websites are hosted on my dedicated server.
  3. Emails about potential jobs;
  4. Easily answered emails from others;
  5. Emails from others requiring long or complex answers. (May never get answered, unless you are willing to pay for my time; see below.)

Easily Answered Emails - Free

An "easily answered email" might be something like one of these:

  • What is your source for the story, "The One With the Star On Her Forehead"?
  • Is your book We All Go Together still available? (Answer: No, sadly.)
  • Do you know where I might find someone who performs stories from the New Testament?

Writing I Charge For - And How to Get Free Answers

The following are questions that I generally charge to answer in depth. My rates range from $125 to $475 per hour, depending on the urgency and the expertise required. Some are better answered in print; others should begin with a scheduled phone call:

  • Can you suggest a story or two that would be relevant for my event?
  • Can you find me several variants of "Snow White" from your folklore collection?
  • What are the next steps I should take to market my storytelling?
  • What should I charge for my storytelling?
  • What is the difference between telling stories to adults and telling stories to children?
I give free certificates for answering various questions - and for telephone coaching - with certain versions of the Storytelling Workshop In a Box, The Beginning Storytelling Toolkit, or other storytelling courses. For many, this will be the most cost-effective way to get detailed answers to important storytelling questions.
