The Moment of Impact: How to Have Presence

I'm presenting a free teleseminar and discussion on this subject for story practitioners next Wednesday 8th April, and am really looking forward to it. It's hosted by the Worldwide Story Work ning forum, a parallel forum to this Professional Storyteller network. If you have any interest in applying storytelling to work it's a great community and you can join for free. And I'd love to hear you on the call. If you've not been on a teleconference before, it's easy - just call the phone number at… Continue

I just sent a Dave from Scotland to your website. He was looking for a storyteller to tell at his wedding in August. He wants histories and Ghost stories. I hope you can help him find what he needs. (Somehow he found my webpage when he searched for storytellers in Scotland. I would loved to have done the gig, but the travel was just to much. sigh.)

Nice meeting you Tim. I have not been very active lately in this plataform but i hope to get involved again. I studied in the US my career (BFA in Acting) and i really miss hearing and learning from across the sea.

Doubt it's still your birthday, Tim.  I'm looking at east coast U.S. time, but that doesn't mean my wishes for a great time are any the less.  May the fun continue on, stretching it out.  Enjoy it!!! That's my hope.

Hi Tim,

Sorry...I did not mean to delete it. Guess I clicked the wrong button, while logging out :(


Storytelling in India is largely done in a traditional manner (involving mythology & religion). Every state has it's own form of storytelling...some sing the stories, some are travelling tellers, some use cloth paintings (similar to kamishibai). But this art form is dying with modernisation and advent of TV.

The are a few modern storytellers like me (and several others) cropping up all over India and we want to keep storytelling alive. We trained under one of the more prominent teller/ trainer here, Dr.Eric Miller. And I wanted to give his reference to Caroll. However, Caroll did communicate directly with him.

Thanks for your message, Tim. We should indeed get our paths to cross, yes. I'd like that. I will be at Festival at the Edge this year, doing a bit of MC-ing and running one or two of the storyrounds. Are you going to be there this year? Otherwise, I'm sure we'll bump into each other sooner or later. Let's hatch a plan for it... Debs

Tim, I have just stumbled across you here and am well chuffed. Because...I wanted to thank you sincerely for your no-nonsense, bumbling-daydreamer-proof, clear and friendly Storyteller's FAQ. It is wonderous. I discovered it a couple of years ago when I started telling (or, rather when I realised that storytelling was in fact what I had indeed been up to all these years and decided to apply myself to it properly!). It was a godsend, a tonic and a bleedin' relief to find it. And now I've found you, and I can finally thank you for writing it. Thank You.

Hi Tim ,

I am a storyteller from India and I have been telling stories to children at Urban schools for the past 4-5 years . I will be visiting London in the first week of May and would like to meet some storytellers and maybe watch their performances . I shall be grateful to you if you could help me in getting in touch with a few of them ? Any possibility of meeting you ?

warm regards

Ah, Tim, I've been away from the ning site for a while & didn't know you had joined it. Glad to see you here & on facebook! Would that I could find a way to introduce you to Tom. Tim & Tom. Trust me, it would be a fun combination.
As Kevin said, it's been too long since you've been able to be here in the states, but I understand.

Tim, I hope you are doing well. I hope to see you in the states again soon. It has been too long. I appreciate all you do. all the best, Kevin Cordi
