The International
School of Storytelling

Begin it Now: specifically with children in mind

.... if you’ve ever thought “I could never remember all that”, if you’ve ever worried about standing up in front of an audience of children, then this could be just the course for you.

By the end of the weekend you’ll have several stories under your belt, gained confidence in sharing stories with children and go away with some hot tips on how best to tell a story. All this will take place in a supportive atmosphere with plenty of fun to allow you to unfold your natural creativity and begin storytelling with children now!

It is possible to book accommodation and meals at Emerson College during your course.
