Sidebars

As story architects, we help you develop and tell your story to people who need to hear- those making decisions and policies, writing books, providing services and funding for causes that matter to you. You can help change negative and unhealthy narratives that have become dominant in our society.

Telling stories of lived experience reveals personal truth that is undeniable and demands to be heard. The stories of your life are powerful and memorable because they put a human face on your ideas and beliefs. Because they aren’t created and promoted by professionals with an agenda, we call them Sidebar Stories.

The SIDEBAR STORY map (PHD) contains three frames based on biological responses of listening to stories.

POSSIBILITY

POSSIBILITY: Sidebar Stories start with hope. Good stories begin with a dream, a vision of what the future can be. Remembering your goals and ambitions provide energy to continue the journey. Beginning with a vision of what you desire brings us together and helps us find common ground.

HURDLE

HURDLE: In moving toward a desired future, it’s common to face obstacles that slow you down or make you want to quit. Facing the fears,  disappointments and uncertainty of problems or conflicts can strengthen commitment, move to action and give clues for the final frame of your sidebar.

DISCOVERY

DISCOVERY: By tackling the hurdles, you can find a new direction, solution, or question to ask. Original possibilities might be confirmed or may shift to something more practical and hopeful. This completes your sidebar with insights and inspiration for everyone who sees your work.
