 I just wanted to thank you again for coming to our literacy night and being such a hit with the kids and parents. It will long be remembered. It really was nice to have such a great storyteller amongst us and the kids are still talking about it. I hope that next year you will consider joining us again.


Dear Karl:
Last Thursday you were a storyteller at our school. I wanted to say thank you for going above and beyond that evening and giving of your talent and time. I understand you stayed longer than planned to begin with. [We] missed getting into your last storytelling of the evening. At the end of the session we stepped in and asked what your favorite story to tell was. You answered about how the skunk got it's stripes. When I asked for the minute summary, you kindly told that whole story, even with bits of storyteller flair, and entranced myself, my son, and two girls. Thank you so for going the extra mile, for the private story, and being so gentle and understanding with the kids; it finished our evening off wonderfully and made a lasting impression.

Hi Karl,
Thanks for referring me to Merilee Stowell in Parowan for their "Inspirational Night" entertainment. My husband's going to go with me and they're putting us up at Brian Head for the night.
I've really enjoyed getting to know you and telling with you at Frontier Fest and the Utah Storytelling Showcase that Rachel Hedman so expertly put together. Hope to tell with again, Suzanne

sorry Karl, I have been off the mat for a while. You can search PS for "Fifty Ways to use this storyteller" or go to my webpage and it is there or you can go to Sean Buvala's website and it is there.

I would encourage you to look into your state's "Festival Association" each county or community has a festival and there is usually a statewide "association" for people who are interested in those events, vendors, talent, etc. Jump in and get to work.
Hope that helps

Hey Karl,
To my new friend . . . I had a lot of fun storytelling with you at Frontier Fest. I never got tired of hearing the bear story. You're an awesome mountain man. I hope we get to tell together again sometime soon! Suzanne

Karl, I have been a professional storyteller since 1993 doing shows locally and developing my talent in order to step into it in my retirement. About a year and half ago I develop a web page and have been using word of mouth and brochures to get my name out there. I also call the local newspaper or television show to let them know I am going to be in there area. You have to be your own PR man and get it out there. I am a member of a storytelling group which has help me develop my skills. I am working on books and cd material right now since I have more time to expand. This is another way of marketing yourself but expanding the business end of the storytelling. I have two shows coming up in June since I didn't get the material out in January to the Library for booking purpose. I hope this answer some of your questions about transitioning from teaching to retirement. Or should I say semi retirement.

Hey Karl,
Have you sent poems in yet? We're getting tons of them but since I'm traveling I haven't seen where they are from - I will look forward to reading your submissions - it would sure be a blast to come to your school. Best, Bill

Hey Karl,
I had a great time at POLK ELE! The kids were so fun to be with and the time flew by. It was a fun schedule to go from class to class. I told one of the classes I am like a traveling storyteller of old and each classroom is a village. Thanks for inviting me to your home turf! I loved it.
Sorry I missed Storyfest. I am sure you are breathing a sigh of relief that is over. Wish I could have been there.
Tell On,

Great to hear from you, Karl! I still think fondly of the Timp conference and the new friends I made there -- hope to see you sometime soon again --

Dear Karl:

Thanks for saying "yes" to join up on this site.

I know how much you are into storytelling advocacy and I think you will be able to share those great ideas here.

I heard that you almost got a storytelling club at an elementary school. What is the story behind that project?

Until we tell again,

Rachel Hedman
