LYN FORD, STORYTELLER - TELLER OF HOME-FRIED TALES
I saw old Autumn in the misty morn stand shadowless like silence, listening to silence.

Travelin' to Tell!
I'm excited about all the wonderful events in which I participated in August! And September is proving to be just as beautiful!  

  • I'm always thrilled to be invited to one of the very best storytelling events in the country.  It's always family friendly and jam-packed with powerful voices of all ages sharing stories--12, yes, TWELVE well-loved names will be there, as well as young storytellers who are already great practitioners of the spoken word. TIMPANOGOS STORYTELLING FESTIVAL AND CONFERENCE 2016 was another fantabulous event!  For more information, go to timpfest.org
  • THE TRANSFORMATIVE LANGUAGE ARTS NETWORK POWER OF WORDS CONFERENCE is becoming one of my favorite places to share, learn, and simply embrace the power of the spoken, written, and sung word.  For more info, go to http://tlanetwork.org/
  • SCHOHARIE CROSSING STORYTELLING was a new experience for me, but I felt welcomed and truly honored to be listed on their Summer 2016 roster of storytellers!  Info is available at nysparks.com/events/ 
  • September is flying by like the leaves that have already started blowing off our maple trees!  I've been to Omaha NE, where the Moonshell Storytelling Festival celebrated an anniversary year, with stories from Eth-Noh-Tec (the fabulous Nancy Wang and Robert Kikuchi-Yngojo), Larry Brown, and me!

I've got a quotation listed in a new publication!  Go to http://smalltoothdog.com/our-books/storytellers-journal-number/ for Sean Buvala's latest publication:
 Storyteller’s Journal #1: What You Should Know
It's a write-in journal for spoken-word storytellers.  I've got my copy!  Love it!  


NSN CONFERENCE Master classes were a big hit!  Geraldine Buckley, Jim May, Leeny Del Seamonds--I would have been in one of these sessions, if I weren't doing my own.  These classes were held on Thursday, July 21st from 1-6 pm in Kansas City, MO at the conference hotel. 2017 events?  After the planners, committee members, volunteers, and membership get a rest (KC was HOT!  So were the Fringe programs!), look for news at www.storynet.org!
