How to Tell a Great Story
We recommend that everyone cast on RISK! listens to this 56-minute how-to talk to from Kevin called What Every RISK! Storyteller Should Know! If you’re contemplating pitching a story to us or sending us an anecdote recording, taking these lessons to heart could go a long way, too!

Ready to pitch us a full-length story (over 10 minutes long) to tell at a future date? Visit our Submissions page to learn all about that.
Or would you rather send us a recording of you telling a little “anecdote” mini-story (under 4 minutes)? Visit our Anecdotes page to learn all about that.
Either way, we’d love to hear from you!
