Valentine's Day, Romance 101, and stuff I wish I hadn't done...

Some years ago, the same year that John Gray published "Men are from Mars, Women are from Venus," I had several gigs in the weeks prior to Valentines Day with several "H" card shops giving workshops on "Romance".  They were always full, couples, singles, male and female.  But the next year I couldn't bring myself to pitch the workshop to any of the local card stops.  The folks who attended ran the gambit, eager young couples wanting to get it right, brow beaten men accompanied by wives who…

Writing a book, now how do you do that?

I've been working on my first book about storytelling; the working title is "Tricks of the Trade"  with "tricks" meaning "acquired skills".

I've actually written lots of books for private industry.  Training manuals, equipment documents and so forth; but I never "decided" to write a book about storytelling until recently. Like many, I've talked about it, daydreamed about it, and well, just never pulled the trigger. It might seem strange to say but I don't think writing a book about…

This Could Be Any of Us

Recently a few spammers contacted members, asking to be emailed back for something "of interest to you."  They were quickly removed as soon as it was known.  I asked new member, Tom Doty, if I could post this for him so you don't think he's spamming.  I've known Tom for many years through the email list, Storytell. He's definitely a long time Professional Storyteller -- 33 years sharing native stories.  Look at …

The Better Face of Storytelling Competitions

I just got back from Jakarta where I was judging the Storytelling Competition for the Asian English Olympics. I'm not normally that keen on storytelling competitions, but I feel differently about this one. Firstly apart from the first round all the stories are improvised on the spot. So there is none of the spouting of memorised lines that I have seen in so many storytelling competitions.…

For those of you that don’t know what Bucket Filling is, it is based on a book by Carol McCloud, Have You Filled a Bucket Today? To fill a bucket one does things that makes others feel good about themselves. It can be anything from complimenting them to… Continue

FEST: Federation of European Storytelling...August 11-13th, Reading England, come along!!

Hello my fellow story fiends and friends

A great swelling noise is rising, from the heart of Europe. Some years ago storytellers gathered from near and far and asked how they could build a European Community of storytelling. Some wanted more places to work, others wanted to hear what other countries were doing, others simply wanted to connect and grow stronger.

It has tumbled and tossed over the waves of time these last few years and manifested in a great gathering at… Continue
