You've enjoyed the magic of hearing storytellers weave their words into pictures in your mind, and now you want to have a go, so where can you find a story to tell? Here are some of the books and websites that we have found useful. CDs and websites with audio content are also excellent ways of hearing storytelling in action, but nothing beats seeing storytelling live. The more storytellers you see, the more you'll appreciate the rich diversity of telling styles and stories. You'll find links to Storytellers' websites under Storytellers.
When choosing your first story, try to find a short one with a strong plot that really appeals to you - telling stories is not an exercise in memory, but a way of expressing yourself! What you should aim for is not a 'cover' version but your own interpretation.
So, when you've found that first story, tried out telling it to the mirror or the cat, why not bring it along to our weekly storytelling circle, Tuesdays 8 - 10 pm? Details.
