Hi Sylvia, thank you for your lovely comments. Yes, we do have a New Zealand Guild of Storytellers; their website is www.storytelling.org.nz
However, it doesn't appear to be updated very regularly; I do belong, but don't appear on it yet.
At the Marlborough Farmers' Market, I am telling some traditional tales such as Stone Soup, Little Red Riding Hood and so on, with a Farmers' Market 'flavour'. For instance, I have some child helpers take on the roles of townspeople and think up things that we can add to our Stone Soup that are available at the Farmers' Market. I also use rhythm, rhyme and song for variety and to keep their interest up with shorter 'snappier' tales. I haven't 'told' to adult groups yet, only children.
Thank you for your interest.
How far are you from Chapel Hill? I will be down Oct 8,9,10,11 and was hoping to meet other tellers for coffee and a little swapping at some point. Know anyone in that area? It is beautiful there, I was in town in July to move my daughter and her husband there. find me at www.carolynstearnsstoryteller.com
It's really good to hear from you again. It has indeed been that long since we hung out together in Greensboro. I'm pleased to hear NC has a Guild. Are you planning to be at the NSN conference this summer?
All the best,
Thank you for all of your kind words Sylvia! I enjoyed my weekend at the festival very, very much. The audience was great and all of the volunteers were lovely and caring. I hope you have a wonderful week and I hope to see you next year (or sooner!)
Howdy Sylvia! I'm excited because I am coming to spend the summer in Charleston SC. I hope you will share with me what is going on in the storytelling world so I can participate as much as possible. It looks like you do amazing stuff!
Yes, it's good to hear from you again. And I just saw you at Patchwork too. It's great to be part of this fine network of professional tellers! Hope all is well with you. Hope to see you soon. :-) Leeny
Thanks for the welcome. I'm proud to call David Joe a friend. So come on over to J'boro sometime. The Teller in residence program will be starting soon at ICS. Pick a date and let's have lunch. I'll show you the sites that you can't see during the festival. LOL
Congratulations on telling in Henderson and East Carolina University festival. I was invited to help emcee at the Laurinburg festival and have several other bookings taking me to the Greensboro area and to the mountains near Franklin.
The Greensboro festival is a regular event on my calendar now. I will definitely be there. I have hopes of attending the festival in Laurinburg, too, but nothing is finalized.
I just recently landed an invitation tell at the Henderson Storytelling Festival and at a story and art festival hosted by East Carolina University. Both are in early April and ought to be a lot of fun.
