Event Description

Did you hear about the girl who married a serial killer? Or the misfits who created their own commune in the woods? Or the father who swallowed his children?

Don't worry, it all comes out all right in the end! Sort of.

Explore your natural skills and learn how to remember and tell stories, using simple imaging and memory techniques. Not only will you have fun, but you will leave with the beginnings of your own collection of folktales, and have a lot of fun.

This workshop is suitable for people at all levels of experience, including anyone who has never told a story before. It will be helpful for those who use storytelling in their work (teachers and health workers, for example) and for those who wish to perform at storytelling clubs, comedy clubs, open mics, etc.

Storytelling can be a powerful medium in our personal lives, and you will find that folktales are also very relevant to the telling of personal stories.

Lynne Cullen is the creator, producer and host of Seanachie Nights, a monthly storytelling evening dedicated to stories and music from Ireland, England, and the Celtic tradition. In 2009, Lynne was awarded a Maine Arts Commission Good Idea Grant.
