About the course
Have you ever wondered if you could give the gift of storytelling to the young people in your life but not sure how to begin? Do you find it a daunting prospect, wonder if other people are better than you, worry that you won’t remember the words without the aid of a book?
Have you ever considered that you are already a storyteller, listening to and telling stories every day? Storytelling is part of what makes us human and if we’re lucky this love of story begins when we’re very young, on our parents or grandparent’s knee, or from our favourite teacher or librarian.
Join Danyah Miller for this online interactive, experiential workshop and watch these worries slip away as you and your fellow storyteller travelers beginning to find your own unique storytelling voices.
The session with Danyah was simply wonderful. So wonderful in fact, that I have felt compelled to write my first thank you for a course since I started teaching 15 years ago!!

‘I have learned that I can tell a story and engage 120 children; I have learned I can write a story; I have learned there is magic in, and under, everyday objects. I have learned that stories live within me. I have learned that books are only the beginning. It will stay with me and change my teaching forever. ’
