Professional Storyteller is a network for people who work in the field of oral storytelling. Please write a brief paragraph about your work.
I am constantly amazed by the impact of finding, crafting and telling our stories, and listening as others do the same. I love to make sense of and entertain with stories from 'real life', and also to teach others to mine their lives for meaning and stories.

I am on the committee of Storytelling Australia Victoria.

I noticed the other day when writing out the first step for…

Storytelling as One of the Feeling Arts

When I teach storytelling workshops one of the hardest thing for me to explain is the nature of the progress that needs to be made by the teller in the story;  the internal journey of the teller.  

And a critical part of this if showing us the emotions that they felt as they grapples…
