Two Storytelling Workshops with Clare Muireann Murphy

I want to give a plug for two workshops coming up next week with the fabulous visiting Irish storyteller Clare Muireann Murphy. How could you not love that face?

I met Clare through her work with FEST (Federation for European Storytelling) and I'm delighted that she is coming to Newfoundland.  If you have an interest in storytelling, performance, spoken word, or theatre, take one of these workshops!  There are two, one in Mount Pearl, one in St. John's, and they are for people with a wide range of backgrounds, or no background in storytelling at all.  You can read more about Clare at

I attended Clare's workshop last week and felt she did a fantastic job. She's amusing, feisty and made a person like me (with zero experience) feel at home.
