Welcome to The Art of Storytelling, a personal blog and portfolio by Leslie I. Benson.
Storytelling – in its many forms – stems from an ability to understand and connect with humanity, forming a deeper level of meaning from life experiences, not only from your own, but from the experiences of others. It’s the art of objective observation, absorption of new information, and the ability to express the truth to others, which, yes, is often stranger than fiction.
My lifelong pursuit of creative endeavors continues with each new challenge. I am grateful for the opportunities I’ve had so far during my career as a content writer and editor in the fields of journalism and marketing. In fact, you may have seen my work in these publications.
I believe it is my purpose in life to tell stories – through writing, music, and healthy living. I hope the content on this site will help inspire you on your own creative storytelling journey. Happy reading!
