Professional Storyteller is a network for people who work in the field of oral storytelling. Please write a brief paragraph about your work.
Tongues Wagging Productions~Storytelling is two professional Canadian storytellers, Glenna Janzen and Carol Leigh Wehking, who tell stories as a team - in tandem and solo. We tell stories from world folktale traditions, from epic and myth, and from history, including Mennonite (Glenna) and family history, and some literary stories. We teach storytelling, and have both taught in the Parent-Child Mother Goose Program. Glenna was Executive Director of that programme for years. We have participated in World Storytelling Day every year since its beginning, and are both members of Storytellers of Canada - Conteurs du Canada, of which Glenna was the longest-serving National Coordinator. Both of us have directed a number of storytelling festivals, including Carol Leigh directing the Toronto Festival of Storytelling (twice with Dan Yashinsky and once on her own). We are dedicated to storytelling as an art form and as a connection between people.
Welcome to Professional Storyteller, the social networking site for storytellers around the world. We hope you participate by adding friends, joining forum discussions, blogging, adding storytelling-related photos, and joining groups. Share a story… change the world!
Happy Tales to You,
Dianne de Las Casas, Founder
