There have been great societies that did not use the wheel, but there has been no society that did not tell stories.
Once Upon A Story - The interactive workshop was fun for the whole audience. Margaret taught us how to really spin a yarn properly. A great story should be contagious, credible, connect with emotions and surprise and delight the audience.
And remember when telling a story humor disarms the audience!
Barb penned the following poem...
Margaret - Kotuku member since 1982
This session here is quite a fuss
For the child in all of us
Margaret's a story teller of some renown
Her neighborhood is Timaru town
For 15 years she's plied her trade
In schools and libraries she's raved
Stories sad, happy, frightening and gory
Marg believes the world is a story!
- Barbara Henderson-Wragge
Life is the most wonderful story of all claimed Hans Christian Anderson.
