I passed on your site to a friend who works in Children's Literature. Yes, as you say, I am very active. Storytelling is a great and passionate journey for me. The role of story and the way in which it affects children and adults continues to astound me.
I work with performance as well as teaching, lecturing, workshops, and applied storytelling in the community. I am blessed to have this life!
Please tell me more about your company and festival if you get time.
Good to find you on here, your website is wonderful. I have forwarded it on to a friend who has just completed her Masters in Children's literature in London. It would seem that you have nurtured a thriving community interest in storytelling there in Indonesia?
I would be interested in seeing anything you have published in English on storytelling and children. I am collating an archive of all the "storytelling proof" that h as been written over the years to assist storytellers in getting funding by having the proof to back up what we all know intuitively. Any help or advice on this is appreciated.
Yes, this site is a great forum for connecting. And I would love for you to join the group! Simply click on "Groups" at the top of your home page, then click on the "Applied Storytelling" icon (a nice cup of cappuccino!), then click on "Join this Group." I look forward to having you with us! Best wishes. STEVE
I wish for you a wonderful New Year. We have some common notions, I am studying children's literature and oral tales for my disseration at Ohio State but as it is connected to narrative and process drama. Thanks for your work. It is important. Kevin www.kevincordi.com
