When I first started storytelling (back in the stone ages), I was amazed at Sharing the Fire — the Northeast’s premier storytelling conference. It was wonderful, inspiring, encouraging and education. I still have some great friends from those days.
This year, STF is happening from Friday, March 23 through Sunday, March 25 in Plymouth, MA. I’m going to be giving a workshop called, “Getting Them To Listen” on Saturday at 1:30pm about how to communicate more powerfully.
Democracy, diversity and heroism/ American stories for all
Stories inspire, teach and model future behavior. Storytelling is a way to bring people together — across age and economic and social and racial barriers. Listeners unite in a powerful and shared experience, and come away with strength that can transform the present and shape the future.
From Many, One is a program with humor and heart that transmits the message found on the Great Seal of America — that our nation is stronger for our diversity.
