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.
