Hi again Lois - In case you're interested, I'm doing a pre National Storytelling Week show to the SW of London at Riverhouse Arts Centre, Walton-on-Thames, Surrey, on Friday 29 January.

My actual National Storytelling Week performance in Cheltenham, Gloucestershire, is a guest artist spot in a poetry open mic event at Smokey Joe's coffee bar on Thursday 4 February from 7pm. I think they're letting me do something like 2 x 20 minute spots.


Sorry if this is stuff you don't want!

Kind regards, Chloë.

UK National Storytelling Week 2016 runs Saturday 30 January to Saturday 6 February. A few days either side of the official week also sneak under the NSW banner.

The UK Society for Storytelling is a not for profit, non promoting, mostly non professional organisation. It does not organise or fund NSW events. The website provides a listing of storytelling activities throughout the UK, details submitted by individual organisers. There's also a page noting the dates of each year's NSW.

Media largely disregard storytelling except as children's entertainment.

Kind regards, Chloë.

Ahaaaaaa! Now I understand why I couldn't log in here - I used my Facebook profile, and not another mail address :-D
Found the welcome mail in the mailbox that belongs to the Facebook mail address, which I NEVER (except today ;-) ) log in to.
Best wishes <3

Hi, Lois. This is George Williams ("Old Father William"). It's been a long time since I've been able to check in with PS... It seems likes it's really...slow. Anything happening that you know of? I'd like to reconnect with a storytelling board. If this isn't it, can you recommend one? Thanks...and Merry HannuChristKwnazaNess. <g>

Thank you Lois! Indeed the saying has done a great harm, by putting the total of the Greek oral culture in the same basket...but anyway, I am here now, at your service! I am now preparing a new performance with tales of the wine! Hopefully I will have a small video to will be in Greek though.:)

kisses, Maria

Hi Lois ,

I replied to your private email also - but I think it might a ´´ no reply ´´ email! Anyway , hope that you get it. I love the mask pic. I trained with John Glennard and Ninian Kinnear Wilson ( founders of British Commedia ) in the Nineties in the North West of England. I love masks and maskwork , but , oddly , haven´t used them in telling hitherto.

Hi Lois,

Thanks for the welcome.  I belong to a storytelling guild on Long Island, LISN and I will be going to STF next week.  Have been several times, and am looking forward to this year's event.

Thank you Lois for your warm welcome .No one told me about this network - I found it while I was randomly surfing the net and one thing led to the other ...and here I am . !!!

Thank you for all your help.  If every storyteller I meet is like you, I will, indeed, have a successful career in this profession.

Hello- I was not aware of the Arthur Waley  version. But I do want to find a copy. Would you know a library that carries it?  I plan to check the Main Branch of the Detroit Public Library the next time I am down there. Also, yes please introduce me to Michael! I would love to get his insights on those stories.

Hello Lois-  Thank you for your warm, and very informative welcome.. I recently discovered "THE MAGICAL MONKEY KING mischief in heaven" by Ji-Ji Jiang. I want to learn all the stories in the book!

 Thanks, again
