I am working my way backwards through my Stor e Telling columns from Storytelling Magazine to my blog. This week I finished 2002-2004 and thought it would be helpful to have all 16 blog posts, along with a brief synopsis for each one, in an easy to access post.

I will continue to work through 2005 and 2006 in the coming months.  You will also find links to two blog posts that will lead you to all of the articles from 2007-2013 at the end of this page. 

As autumn leaves begin to fall I hope you will find some quiet time to discover the many delightful stories and resources within. Let your imagination set sail!.


January February - Folktales, myths, legends and pourquoi stories from around the world and a few other sites to whet your appetite.
