The East Tennessee State University (ETSU) Storytelling Program offers numerous opportunities for teachers, ministers, lawyers, businesspeople, parents, grandparents, and plain old well-rounded human beings to augment their professional and personal communication and group-management skills each summer, through the ancient art of storytelling.
