Quarterly Zoom Calls

We’re thrilled to announce a new YES initiative: we’re offering a quarterly web conference on topics of interest to our members.

 

First up, it’s the amazing Carrie Sue Ayvar!

Are you a storyteller who speaks more than one language? Do you want to learn how to reach more listeners? Are you ready to move past direct translations to make your stories more dynamic? Then this on-line workshop is for you – no matter where you are in the world!

Adding a second language into our storytelling is more than just simple translation. It can definitely be tricky but these challenges can also add wonderful rich dimensions to the telling. Participants will explore different methods and techniques for adding a second language to their storytelling and share experiences, strategies, and ideas on how to blend two languages into stories that flow with ease.

Everyone is welcome!

June 13 at 11:30 a.m. EST

June 17 at 8 p.m. EST

This call is happening twice to accommodate various schedules and time zones. Times are listed in Easter Standard Time (EST). We hope you can join us!

NEWS FLASH! We’ve decided to offer this very first Story Lab for FREE. 

This teleconference will be best when joined from a computer with a quality internet connection.

National Storytelling Summit

Don’t miss Carrie Sue’s workshop at the National Storytelling Summit in July, held this year in Fremont, California (Bay Area). This workshop is sponsored by YES (no preconference this year, due to the high cost of lodging in CA).

And that’s not all–check out the board panel on Saturday, July 27 at 10:15 a.m.:

Stump the Pros: A Panel Discussion and Q&A with the YES board

Angela Lloyd, Karin Amano, Priscilla Howe and Donna Washington

Combined, the Youth, Educators & Storytellers Alliance Board has over two hundred years experience telling and teaching. Join us for a session of Ask the Board! Want to know about calming, reclaiming, controlling, and entertaining the youngest listeners with chants, songs, and stretches? What about connecting with roving audiences, bilingual telling, crafting age-appropriate material, and planning residences? We’ll share our wisdom and answer your questions!

There will be plenty of other offerings of interest to YES members. Hope you can join us!
