Ekansh loves traveling, having visited six world borders across five continents. He has been actively engaged in public speaking, educating citizens on borders and photography with a goal to promote the need to understand all perspectives. He resides in Dallas, where he is now interviewing professionals and citizens impacted by COVID 19 and photographing its physical and mental impact there.

Rivets and Girders: Building Storytelling for the Pandemic and Beyond with Elizabeth Ellis

Rivets and Girders: Building Storytelling for the Pandemic and Beyond Like it or not, storytelling is under renovation! First let’s examine the foundation for structural soundness. Then we can identify what can be salvaged and what should be scrapped.
Elizabeth Ellis thinks of herself as running an imaginary travel agency where she takes tourists into the interior of their own hearts. Trips to the underworld are her specialty. N.S.N has honored her with both the Circle of Excellence and Lifetime Achievement Awards. She is the author of From Plot to Narrative and Every Day A Holiday and co-author with Loren Niemi of Inviting the Wolf In.
