"Sounds really fun, and a great experience! I'm from the Pacific Northwest, and except for the Liars' Contest at Folklife Festival, I don't believe I have heard of storytelling competitions before. Do you live in that part of the world?"

Profile Information

Professional Storyteller is a network for people who work in the field of oral storytelling. Please write a brief paragraph about your work.
As a former school librarian, I learned lots of stories, especially folktales of the world. Now, I love telling stories to all ages, in the US and in Germany.
Generally I tell in English, and the Germans are very pleased with Native American and Appalachian stories.

Welcome, Judith!
Whether here in the US or in Germany, I hope you enjoy the networking, whether locally, nationally or internationally.
BTW, besides the international Groups here, do you know Richard Martin? He's a British storyteller who both teaches and storytells in Germany in English. He's a Member here. I think you will find it's worth getting to know him and his work.
