Connie Hale is opening the conference with a story about her Hawaiian upbringing and her storytelling traditions--especially her "bitter loss" in her elementary school storytelling competition. (I've heard it--it's a good story.)

I was just talking to GlobalPost's Charlie Sennott yesterday about the importance of family storytelling in shaping your craft as a writer or storyteller.

Sennott said he can tell 12 great stories that his grandfather told him. How many young reporters can tell the great stories that their grandparents told them? he asked.

It's a good question. Something to add to J-School curricula?
