National Storytelling Week

Whether you like dragons, fairies or finding fortune you will find the art of storytelling has it all.
National Storytelling Week running from January 30 to February 6 celebrates the power of the spoken story.
I find storytelling can be a great educational and therapeutic tool not only for the listener but also the teller in being able to enthuse others with their words.
So whether you are young or old you too can be a storyteller – it just needs a little imagination.
