Why Me?

My telling is responsive, improvised and draws upon old tales flavoured by the participants’ reactions and imaginations. I lean heavily towards oracy and memory; writing was a rare necessity at the 'Practical Storytelling' courses that I taught for the Workers Education Association.

Storytelling offers many benefits to society. All ages and levels of education are catered for; traditional tales are international and timeless in their simplicity yet touch on universal emotions. Laughter, always a powerful learning tool, is almost inevitable. The listeners change the story; they become an  integral part of the storytelling and as such they are so much more than observers.
