Professional Storyteller is a network for people who work in the field of oral storytelling. Please write a brief paragraph about your work.
Listening to stories fulfills a basic need in a child. It is from listening to stories that all growth and development starts. My organization MADRAS STORY WORKS fulfills this need. We tell stories, we read stories, we encourage children to tell their own stories. We hold Saturday Storytelling Sessions at Grassroots Playschool in Chennai. As a member of the Chennai Storytelling Association we participate in public storytelling events. We tell folktales, animal fables, fairy tales and episodes from the Indian epics. We include poems and story reading sessions too. Madras Story Works believes in having fun telling stories!

We have many members here from Chennai. (The search box in the upper right can help you learn who they are.) This is a great place for storytellers to network both in your own area and around the world. Whether it's the various groups and the general forum there's plenty of opportunity for discussion. Added to that, here you can blog, post photos, videos, and events in the Chennai area and it's all free -- although any donations to maintain the network, of course, would be welcome.
I hope you enjoy this great way to further your storytelling.
