Really who is Learnin’ Vernon and why Learnin’?
That’s a strange name.
Vernon L. Cox is the story teller Learnin’ Vernon Teller of legends, lore, and a whole lot more.
The quick Answer:
It is a stage name. Kind of, well he is not on a stage that often. He is usually in the audience connecting, interacting. He is always learning better ways to be who he can be, whether storytelling or just being who he is.
As story teller Learnin’ Vernon, he has entertained audiences from Presque Isle, Maine to Hollywood California.
Ever since he can remember Vernon has been telling stories.
Vernon spent the third Saturday of every month as a reader and performer for the Buck Memorial Library’s Story Hour in Bucksport Maine. As a parent raising his daughter Shanna in Orland he refined his tales at many a scout campfire, birthday party and during holiday events.
Librarians taught him to appreciate the audience as much as the author which you were sharing.
Scouts and being involved in his daughters life has taught him that the more you give to others the more you realize their gift to you which becomes a debt you could never repay.
Vernon learns every day to be a better storyteller from his audiences and his peers. He regularly attends workshops and open mics to further his craft.
He has been a military medic, cook, custodian, mental health worker, electrician, volunteer firefighter, E.M.T. and a lifetime member of Girl Scouts. It is through all of these memories that Vernon draws for his tales. He has learned that every day a new journey begins and a new experience unfolds.
That is why he shall always remain a Learnin’ Vernon!
Oh yea, Learnin’?
That’s a strange name, or some would think but it sounds cool, “Learnin Vernon.” Learning Vernon just is not as much fun so he dropped the g. The official web site featuring Learnin' Vernon http://MEtell.namePlease join us for just some of our interesting discussions.
