Storytelling Workshop Offered in KC Area

The Greater Kansas City Interpretive Sites Coalition will be hosting a storytelling workshop on February 2.  This three-hour workshop will open the world of storytelling possibilities to you.  Tap into the amazing power of storytelling to educate, entertain, enlighten, and empower.  Discover how to reach out through the magic of stories and explore the use of stories to enhance your interpretive programs. Storytelling helps your programs come to life, cost nothing and can be taken with you anywhere! Learn about stories for nature walks, wildlife presentations, history and more.  Folklore, personal memories, multicultural stories, and myths all can be used to spice up your presentations.  Anyone can become a storyteller!  Instructor Molly Postlewait has been telling stories for over 20 years and is an award-winning storyteller. Participants will receive a professionally-produced CD, Whisper in the Wind, created by the National Association for Interpretation.  The stories are told by interpreters from Missouri, Kansas, Arkansas, Oklahoma and Texas display a variety of story styles.  This CD was awarded the National Association for Interpretation Outstanding Product for 2011. Proceeds from the workshop will go to the Greater Kansas City Interpretive Site Coalition and to the NAI Region 6 for the production of the CD.
