merci pour le message, maintenant je me souviens de ce stage , très nouveau pour moi, à Plan les ouates... j'espère que la rencontre d'août était heureuse,
j'étais au brésil.
Bon van, bonne brise,
à bientôt l'écho.

Dear Deirdre,

We are coming to settle our son in University Lausanne in September. Are you around then ?

I believe you just saw Donald Smith with whom I recently did an event in Edinburgh.

Hi Deirdre,
I thought I just wrote to you and told you that I have finally managed to send a photo to Professional Storyteller, a real miracle after two days hard work, but my message seems to have gone into space.
May I ask you about the abbreviation FEST. Does it mean "Federation for European Storytelling"? I have also seen "Federation of European Storytellers". These two seem both possible. I have even seen "of" in the first case and "for" in the second, two alternatives that seem bad to me. Has there been any discussion about the name? "European" should have a capital "E", and it feels good to write "Storytelling" with a capital "S" too. It would be good to decide once and for all.
Look forward to meeting you in Lausanne!
All the best,

Yes I know, what is the limit, and how will you make your selection? we are only three from the Swedish Storytelling Network board, how many others are there?

Hello again! Does Lausanne have an airport, Deidre? Do you know its code? I've been trying to look into flights from the UK, but am having no luck! Thanks. Cat x

Hi Deidre!
Happy New Year! J'ai eu un automne very busy entre le travail et une mère très faible au Danemark que je retournerai voir dans deux jours. Pas facile d'être partout. J'ai vu mon groupe hier pour le première fois et j'ai raconté notre rencontre en Norvège. Je pensais m'être mise dans le groupe de Fest sur la page web mais je ne vois pas mon nom et ma photo. Je ne vois pas non plus comment faire pour se mettre dans le "club".je n'ai rien entendu du groupe 'language" mais j'ai repris contact avec Heidi pour avoir leur coordonnées, et si Fest se réalisera à Lausanne il n'est pas impossible que quelques membres du groupe des Hauts Parleurs pourraient intervenir avec un petit spectacle type happening autour des langues.Pour l'instant je suis très curieuse de savoir si vous avancez et si la réalisation de cette manifestation semble se pointer dans l'horizon. Cela doit exiger beaucoup de temps et de courage! Alors merci de me donner quelques nouvelles et si possible de me redonner ton mail perso. J'ai perdu toutes mes adresses dans Outlook. Tu peux m'écrire sur
Grosses bises

Thanks, Deirdre. What exactly is the symposium science and storytelling?! Cat x

Hi Deirdre!

Can you tell me the actual dates for FEST 2009? Thanks! Cat x

Thank you Deirdre. I am fine, and still inspired from FEST last summer. Hope you are doing fine as well.
Love Tjodun

Ignore my last question. I have just checked out your website. Should have done it before I added my comment!

I'm slowly adding more references. Your photos are great. I see you are based in Geneva. My brother lives in Zurich. Perhaps I can time a visit when there is a special storytelling event. Do you tell your stories in French?
At 2:35pm on September 24, 2008, Emma Alexander Arthur said…
Hi Deirdre, I added your website to the list on the Celtic Storytellers discussion group. I thought it was an excellent reference source.

Thank you. I am glad to be here. It seems I am in very good company. It is very good to keep in touch and to keep alive the wonderul spirit of the Oslo conference and carry it into Switzerland.

Hello Deirdre,
What a fascinating profile... it is going to be very interesting learning more about you....

Any photos of me taken at 6 in the morning are only used for horror story programs. Rivka
