Transom Tools: SHOUT OUT - A Kid’s Guide to Recording Stories

This page on is a guide (for kids) on how to collect stories. It’s offered as a downloadable PDF, too.

Collecting stories is easier than you think. Find a park bench or front porch. Invite your grandmother, your friend, or coach to join you. And listen.

That’s the key. In the listening, you will hear stories that people often keep to themselves - that we don’t slow down enough to hear. These stories can be truer and more important than many things we hear on radio, see on TV or read in the newspaper.

This booklet will help you gather those stories. It is an introduction to spoken history.
