Professional Storyteller is a network for people who work in the field of oral storytelling. Please write a brief paragraph about your work.
I'm in my fourth year of semi-professional storytelling. I was inspired by Robin Williamson's work, but soon met other tellers and came to learn the ropes from listening and observing. I had my own street theatre company before (Theatre of War), have worked in travelling theatre (Horse and Bamboo) and do occasional compeer work, so was no stranger to talking to audiences. I entered the world of traditional stories through Celtic and English folk and fairy tales, but am now starting to discover just how big the world of story is. I've done a lot of storytelling for children, but increasingly prefer telling stories to adults.

As you've probably discovered there are many of us who come to storytelling through a theatre background. If you use the search box at the top right you'll also find fellow members from Norwich -- both UK & US, but it's easy to tell who your nearby colleagues are. We have a Celtic storytelling group here, but I'm sure that won't be all that interests you on this network. Have fun exploring this site!
