Stories are everywhere and many storytellers are traveling to find the stoiies or maybe the stories find the teller.

Hi All, just joining PS, the group & the conversations. I've told in Taiwan, Israel, US and Thailand so far, and live in Taiwan. At the moment I'm doing a doctorate on orality and Bible storytelling, and focus on training adults who can use the stories in their everyday lives. Blessings!

Be aware that the  NSN Brimstone Grant is now accepting applications for 2012 projects.  This grant is open to any person or group who is interested in conducting a project that involves storytelling applied in a community. The community may be local or national or international.   Go to the NSN website for information, the application and the scoring.  Deadline is April 29, 2011.  Several international projects have been funded and completed.  Currently there is one international project being implemented by Michael Caduto.  The grant offers the recipient $5000.   The Brimstone Committee serves as the liaison and will assist you as you proceed.  This is an excellent opportunity to design your creative project.

Hi... I'm trying to figure out the best possible way to enable a group of 4-20 people to create stories in a 30-60 min time span. I'd like to ideally get the group to take Campbell-Vogler's Hero's Journey route.

Has anyone tried this exercise before? Tips are suggestions are appreciated.

It's been a while since I've visited this site and am liking what is here. My wife and I lived in Vanuatu for 15 years and found their stories different. It's an adventure though in trying to understand them. Currently we're working with language groups in Milne Bay, PNG. When visiting the local market we found that a Trobriand Islander wanted to sell us a carving, but forewarned us that it came with a story. We thought, 'could this be a setup.' How did he know we were interested in stories? Well, it turned out to be a story about a young boy, his mother and a giant. Later we found that giant stories are quite common in that area. Isn't storytelling great?

Thank you Michael! Looks very interesting and seems to be a major study.

Hi Marianne,

Blodeuwedd is a fascinating character from the Fourth (and final) Branch of the Mabinogion. They form part of a number of stories transcribed in the early Middle Ages in Wales although their roots are much earlier. Re: tragedy, I think Branwen would get my vote from the 2nd Branch.

The English translation I hear recommended the most is by Sioned Davies and published by Oxford.

The longest (and possibly oldest) story in the collection is Culhwch ac Olwen and we are taking it on tour again starting in Wigan (where else?) on Monday followed by a tour of the places named in the great boar hunt that is the finale of the story. for more info or join us Hunting the Giant's Daughter on Facebook.

Blodeuwedd... Mabinogi... ? Please fill me in, I do not know about these stories.
And I am looking for something tragic, so where can I find more about this?
Big wishes to this great forum.

I do agree with you, Marianne! The Week-end in Gottenburg (Gøteborg) was so inspiering and I got allot of new input and idéas of how to create new ways of working...As you know, I have already been engaged in telling stories for sick people for som years, and my last work with old people was exciting, I learned allot about myself end they shared SO much from their lives, we were all looking forward to each time we could meet.
As for ALBA, I'm still engaged (We are arranging a seminar 1-2 may), but also happy to be part of the steering -group here in Norway, without having to be a leader. To be "on the wing" suits me well. At the moment, my "ego" is longing for more music and dancing with my storytelling, so may be I'll take part in Brita Haugens work-shop in VesterJylland in Denmark this summer.
It was nice to see you in Sweden.

Thats my blog Luis. Sign in and weigh in your opinion.
All other tellers too!!! I am compiling an online archive of research and papers on storytelling, a free online archive available to anyone, and hopefully we can use these various story proofs (like kendall's book) to support funding apps etc..
let me know what you think
