Professional Storyteller is a network for people who work in the field of oral storytelling. Please write a brief paragraph about your work.
Since 1981, I've told my collection of over 200 stories as a teacher and librarian "from nursery school to nursing home." In 2002 I began full-time storytelling. Venues: festivals, schools, camps, libraries, senior centers & after dinner. I tell each story (folktale, personal story, literary and historical) with word imaging and unbridled energy.

Sorry I did not get back to P. storyteller to see I had your comment. The holidays were a whirlwind--all family and friends stuff. We spent 3 full days around Christmas with our Daughter and her family in Irmo, SC. So pleased to have excellent weather, especially for the traveling.
It was good to get your 'good' news about Larry at the end of the 'bad'. That was no doubt very scary for awhile. Our best to him! Hope he still feels himself and chipper.
Our work is usually slow after mid-November, and until February. I rather like the break. It meant even more this year with all the scary story immersion in Sept and Oct.
The book was sent to the layout artist the Sunday before Christmas! I am working on proofing the hard copy, and doing those tedious pages like the Index. I think it a fine book. I continue to say that your article is up with the best! When I get the pretty copy from the artist, I will send out each contributor's article for their personal proofing.
Back to my proofing. If that were my only project, I would have finished a week ago!
Be careful on the ice. We have plenty of it. We lost a good friend the 29th do to a bad fall walking on black ice.
The book comes along great. Before too long I will have your article back to you for a draft check. I ended up with 52 articles from 52 different teams. I am working and reworking the best order. How has your storytelling been? I think perhaps fall is extra busy for you and Larry. We were solid booked for most of it. Enjoy your holidays! Jonatha
How will this be different from the storytell list? We just joined. Well, Tom joined and I came along for the ride.
The story locally is our favorite plum tree, a Castleman plum bloomed late, had a bunch of leaf curl, was being attacked by beetles and termites, so after dinner we cut it down and cut it up. [down/up ???] English is funny.
Welcome. I hope you enjoy this site as I have. I wonder, with your teaching-storytelling background, as well as being a storyteller, if you would consider joining the group "Applied Storytelling: the Power of Story"? We would love to have you and I'm sure we would all gain from your knowledge and experience. Best wishes. STEVE

There is bound to be something here that you might like. Don't see a Group that suits your needs? Create one... isn't that cool.
