Following the Breadcrumbs: Stor e Telling VIII July August 2003

Hansel and Gretel
by
M. L. Kirk, 1909
I am traveling back in time and updating all of my Stor e Telling columns for Storytelling Magazine since 2002 I have checked all of the links, updated those that have new URL's and deleted others that have found their way to the Internet graveyard. Through the summer and beyond I will continue to update the columns and post them on my blog until all of the breadcrumbs lead to the end of 2006. At the end of the blog you will find links to the columns from 2007 – 2013.

I continue to write for Storytelling Magazine but will not be adding current columns until the following year. 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.
 

Some of the links for this issue from 2003 are no longer active and could not be found even via the Wayback Machine so some  are missing. Whenever possible, I have included a link to the Wayback Machine so a resource isn't totally lost.

 
Arabian Nights
Let Scheherazade lead you through the ancient and mysterious world of Ali Baba and Sinbad; fall under the spell of a 1001 nights.

Andrew Lang - The Literature Network
There isn’t a pot of gold at the end of this rainbow, but a prism of fairytale books to add to your riches.

Myths, Folktales and Fairytales
Explore folklore with Nina Jaffe, experience a storytelling workshop with Gerald Fierst or a myth writing workshop with Jane Yolen. If that isn’t enough, there are teacher guides, assessments and rubrics, and of course stories!

Nasreddin Hodja
Filled with information and stories about the beloved character of Turkish tales, this website is also a portal to many other Hodja sites. Here is put a small slice of his wisdom… “Hodja! What do they do with the old full moons?”  “They cut them up into small pieces and make the stars!”     Sadly, this site is no longer active but you can still access many of the links, including the stories via the Wayback Machine at this link:

There are pre-conference workshops in the healing arts, for those working with youth, producers and organizers, and Master Classes with some of the best and brightest, and that’s all before the main conference begins! This year, the conference will take place in Arizona and there is still time to register! Check out all of the amazing offerings at the link: http://storynet.org/conference/index.html .

I am delighted to be co-presenting a business workshop with Simon Brooks. Here is a brief description:

Branding, It Doesn’t Have to Hurt!  "Steer" the audience to you. It doesn't hurt to be branded; in fact, it might hurt your business if you’re not. Branding will help your image, professionalism and visibility. Build strength and trust with potential clients; define your personal and business persona. Discover how to subtly create awareness and recognition with your client base and become memorable! Laptops encouraged but not necessary.

For a taste of some of the topics we will cover, head over to our blog piece for the National Storytelling Network at the following link: http://blog.storynet.org/branding-it-doesnt-have-to-hurt .

We hope you can find time in your busy conference schedule to join us and brand your business! Friday afternoon, July 25 at 1:45. We promise, it won’t hurt a bit! Look for the star logo at the top of this blog on our workshop room door at the conference. We will be waiting with lots of information to get you started...and chocolates!
