Have I got a treat for you this morning.
Many people already know that this past Thursday Megan arrived at the National Storytelling Festival as a "New Voice", did herself proud on those stages for two days, and drove back to Virginia last night - a Star in the storytelling "fer ma ment". In February I invited storyteller Megan Hicks as a featured teller for Tales in the Village and as a guest on my TV show, Stories in Focus.
So - as a "Brava" to Megan here's a re-play of our conversation and she tells you a story.
For those who know her and have followed her career Megan's success in Jonesborough was no surprise. She is a seasoned professional - as those who have listened to her know. She has performed at festivals, in schools, and libraries across the country - and outside the borders for that matter. In the storytelling business however appearing on the Jonesborough stage sprinkles "fairy dust" and opens new doors for tellers who are so annointed. So, watch out world here she comes.
For those who don't know her - watch for her at a Festival near you - - and don't miss hearing her stories. Megan Hicks is a real storyteller. Her stories have humor, heart and meaning. For instance if you are in Texas -- Megan is a featured teller at the George West Storytelling Festival - where else - in George West, TX - the first week-end in November.
