Slow and Steady Wins the Race: Stor e Telling January February 2010

Tortoise and Hare
from Childhood's Favorites
and Fairy Tales

I have penned the Stor e Telling column since January of 2002 and the articles from 2002-2006 are the publications page of my website found here I will be adding the columns from 2007 to 2012 to that page as well. However, I am in the process of checking what link URL's have changed or are now defunct. It is a time consuming process so I am taking the “slow and steady” approach via Aesop and will post the individual columns on my blog for now.

I will not be adding current columns until the following year, so if you want immediate access to the newest websites, consider becoming a member of the
National Storytelling Network.

Please feel free to comment on the blog and let me know if you find this useful.
