All I can say is WOW ! What an amazing conference, what amazing people, what a stimulating environment to be in. Thank you SO MUCH for the opportunity to participate, every teacher should somehow get themselves to such a conference.
Yes, I met Karen when she called me and we started lessons. I have written a lot but have done no story telling, which does not preclude me from trying! My background is that of a ballad singer, sound engineer and the many and varied jobs I have done to pay the bills. I'm looking into assisting Karen with some sound reinforcement and video production for her upcoming open mics. In my very short association with Karen I find her vivacious, intelligent and a joy to teach. As for Massmouth, I was impressed with the quality of stories I heard on youtube and even more so with the group as a whole. You folks seem wonderfully different... maybe I've finally found my tribe! Thanks for the welcome!!
Thank you for the very sweet welcome! I was sorry to miss your workshop this week but I am looking forward to attending one in the future. Perhaps we can meet in person on Monday? Take care.
Thanks for the warm welcome! I had a quick question: Is there any way to access the video of our performances? I'd love to see/share the T-telling from Precinct. Any info you can send my way would be great. Happy Turkey Day!
Hi, Andrea. I will definitely get up northish so I can see what a slam is all about. I don't usually tell personal narratives, and at 5 minutes I'm just getting warmed up, but I'd love to see you in action. I'll look at my calendar and see what works. Thanks of the invitation.
