The Australian Storytelling Guild (NSW)
Stories are everywhere in books, newspapers, films, TV, on the Web and in iPods. Stories are EVERYWHERE!
However, for us at The Storytelling Guild of NSW, Stories are TOLD, rather than READ ALOUD. Storytelling is what happens when a Story is told, face to face, eye to eye, mind to mind, heart to heart. The Story is intimately known by the Teller, Spoken aloud, and shared, like a gift, with the audience.
Known as the Narrative Oral Tradition, Storytelling is our first literacy, our oldest Art Form and a living Art.
SO WELCOME to our website and we encourage you to come and join us, and become part of this dynamic, living art form, either as a Teller of Tales, or a Listener to Tales, we welcome both equally.

 SATURDAY APRIL 18th 2015 -  at a new venue! 

4 hour practical workshop for storytellers

Tell Your New Story!

Do you have a new story that is not yet ready or one that you have told before yet needs to be revisited to re-imagine and re energise for a fresh new telling? 

This interactive workshop will provide opportunities to play with different storytelling techniques to help participants view their story from different perspectives and offer new direction for crafting their story. 

Bring to the workshop a short story or a section of a story that you want to refine or recraft. There will be time for practising with a partner before giving voice to your new story.

Stories - and storytellers - at all stages of development are welcome.
