Katy Cawkwell, Storyteller Based in Devon

Storytelling Courses for Adults

If you'd like to develop your own skills as a storyteller, Katy offers one-to-one tuition or group workshops. She is a warm, encouraging teacher and draws on her twenty years experience of working as a storyteller to help you find your own style and way of telling stories.

Katy has a Tuesday morning course currently underway in Whimple, East Devon EX5. She is looking to organise another six session weekday course (each session lasts 2 hours) to start in November 2017: please contact her asap if you might be interested. It is suitable for complete beginners, but will also be very valuable for storytellers with some experience who want to develop their skills. Within the group, there will be opportunity for individual feedback and focus on particular aspects of storytelling relevant to the participants. Maximum 10 participants (but likely much smaller than this!)

Katy will tailor the work to the participants, but we will certainly cover: choosing your material, story structure, "seeing the story", character and landscape, beginnings and endings, pace and timing, basic voice and movement.

Course fees: £120 (option to try the first session before committing, but priority will go to those who sign up for the whole course) Please email katycawkwell@gmail.com or phone 0776 246 9059 to reserve your place.

Katy works mainly with traditional stories, but if you're interested in using storytelling in other ways or working on presentation skills, much of what she teaches will be relevant; please get in touch to discuss what you would like to get out of the work.
