Hear what they are saying: “Penelope guided us through the process of launching our storytelling group. She provided information and support, used her experience and enthusiasm, all to move us from conception to producing our first event. She was present during our rehearsal, gave us tips on providing feedback to the storytellers, and cheered us on at the opening night. Her support was key to our successful, standing-room-only first show! The rehearsal for our second show is tonight. We are preparing with all the tools we need to produce and host the second of many future storytelling events. We are building community one story at a time.”
~Diane Delp, co-founder of Quest Storytelling

If you want to pass on family stories for your grandchildren or create a cohesive and lasting story for your organization, learning the essential elements of story creation and presentation will give you confidence and inspiration.

“And it’s a human need to be told stories. The more we’re governed by idiots and have no control over our destinies, the more we need to tell stories to each other about who we are, why we are, where we come from, and what might be possible.” ~ Alan Rickman
