The Society is very grateful to the late Ro ( Frances Rowena) Walker for her bequest.
Ro was the widow of storyteller Richard Walker who died in February 1999.
Richard was a founder-member of the SfS, and served as both Director and Treasurer. He was also editor of Facts & Fiction and a founding member of Festival at the Edge.
Our thanks and sympathy go to Kate, Ro and Richard's daughter.
Oyez, oyez! Who will give evidence at this forthcoming conference? If the Man in the Iron Mask was a poacher in famous Lincolnshire, then the criminal prosecution of animals is ultra vires since my client is a werewolf. I think we can rule spectral evidence out of court, given that the devil’s pact was signed before a Maiden Assize. John Doe the robber bridegroom may be struggling after death to replace that boundstone, but he is clearly unaware that the passage of his funeral has created a right of way.
Storytellers at Buckingham Palace by Royal command. Janet Dowling and Terrie Howey met the Queen and Prince Philip on March 18th as part of the commemoration of 50 years since the death of Winston Churchill.
Our website is fast becoming the engine driving the Society forward but it is due for a facelift.
The Society for Storytelling is looking for a web designer/ developer who can transform the website (using Drupal) with added sparkles. Funds are available for this adventurous project.
Are you the person to do it?
Can you make it more user friendly?
Can you take the story on to its next level?
The Society for Storytelling sends its warmest congratulations to its patron Professor Marina Warner on being made a Dame in the New Year Honours List for services to higher education and literary scholarship.
