My job?

Encouraging folks to tell stories. To make this happen I do three things.

1.I shape folktale texts into "tellable" formats which I shape further through telling to many groups of children. Then I put these sure-fire tales in books in the hopes that other tellers will find them easy-to-learn and fun to tell...so much so that they will keep telling stories.

2.I travel the world offering workshops on "Playing with Story" and "Learning a Story in One Hour." Using a hands-on method, I teach folks several short, audience-participationfolktales. They leave ready to tell. After only one hour they have at least two stories they can tell. After a full day they have six or more tales ready to go!

3.I tell these playful, audience-participation folktales wherever I can, so that parents, kids, and other tellers can discover how much fun it is to share tales.
