What the Festival contributes:

We wrote the book on storytelling …

The Festival Committee created a manual for teaching storytelling. This manual guides teachers (who often are novice tellers) step by step through the process of turning shy and awkward children into Festival Quality Storytellers who can confidently stand in front of an audience and share a story. Additionally, the manual was designed to be helpful for enhancing the school curriculum with storytelling, even if a teacher is not planning to participate in the Festival.
