"Storytelling 101"

Our Advisory Board colleague from massmouth, Norah Dooley, will be offering a storytelling class at the Cambridge Center for Adult Education for four Thursdays, 6:00-7:30pm, beginning on February 24:

We all have a story to tell. And from NPR programs like "Story Corps" to live stories at massmouth story slams in Boston, personal stories are filling venues and imaginations everywhere. Do you wish you could tell your story? Storyteller Norah Dooley's workshop will focus on story games and oral exercises to find your stories and help you craft a compelling oral, personal narrative and perform it. Handouts, resources, and worksheets will be provided. Class members are invited to tell at monthly massmouth open mics or story slams in the fall/winter. Limited to 12.

Norah's widely acclaimed picture books, Everybody Cooks Rice, Everybody Bakes Bread, Everybody Serves Soup and Everybody Brings Noodles, (Carolrhoda Books @ are four titles in a series about her former neighborhood in Cambridge, MA. She has published six storytelling CDs, and presents in schools, libraries, and teacher's conferences. Norah has performed as a featured storyteller in the Christmas and Spring Revels in Cambridge and Boston MA, the Cambridge River Festival, Newport Folk Festival, Albany NY River Festival, 3 Apples Storytelling Festival, MA, and at the Clearwater Festival.
