National Storytelling Week – Everyone loves narrative and storytelling – it’s something about a story’s beginning, middle and end that makes us feel more of a completeness and understanding of our own lives. As a writer I’m never happier than when I’ve composed a story and found someone who enjoys reading it!
National Storytelling Week is here to celebrate our most ancient art form of all. From retelling something that’s happened in your day; reading a night time story to a child; or watching a plot unfold on TV – storytelling is a part of our own everyday lives and the entertainment we get from movies, programmes, plays and other powerful performances.
The events planned for the 135th National Storytelling week in 2016 are well underway to make sure that this years event is bigger and better than ever!
The Society for Storytelling was established in 1993 and their aim was to promote the ancient art of storytelling. The society is open to anyone with a love and passion for storytelling. Whether you are a storyteller or just someone who loves to listen to a well told tale! People from all over the UK get involved and it’s an enriching experience of bonding and bringing people together.
So, it’s your turn to join in the fun!
You can contact The Society for Storytelling and they will send you a pack with all the information you need on how to organise and promote your own event. If you’re a company looking for a storyteller or you’re interested in becoming a professional storyteller yourself, The Society for Storytelling can provide you with all you need to know.
Good luck, and let the storytelling begin!
