Storytellers from A to Z

As promised, here is a list of storytellers blogging during the A to Z Challenge!
For the first time this year we have expanded the WR tag to Writing/Storytelling. Here I only included blogs written by professional (oral) storytellers. Visit and enjoy!

Story Crossroads - A brand new, up-and-coming international storytelling festival from Utah, telling us how a storytelling even can build and benefit a community.

Mary Garrett, one of my Legendary Ladies, is blogging about storytelling in schools!

Jeri Burns from the amazing Storycrafters is blogging from A to Z again on Storytelling Matters! This year her theme is a Daily Dose of Ghosts!

Pam Faro is also returning, this year with a theme of Story Slams and Traditional Storytelling - Bridging the Distance!

Robin Bady at Starting from Zed (what a great name for an A to Z blog!) will also be joining us with some storytelling goodness!

Megan Hicks is not only joining in (for the third time), she will be writing about origami and Shakespeare!

Julie Moss is joining in for the first time and will be blogging on Adventures in Storytelling.

Sheila Arnold is blogging at Ms. Sheila's Travels about history's stories, and how to tell them.

Tim Sheppard is doing a theme on Delving Deep into the Core Skills of Oral Storytelling!

Sue Kuentz is blogging on the theme of Every Hero has a Story! (Which is very timely, because this year's Summer Reading Program theme is Heroes!)

Heidi Dahlsveen from Norway is blogging about Understanding Trolls!

The Challenge starts tomorrow! Happy A to Z, everyone!


  1. Thank you for your contribution to AtoZ. It's my fourth time. I'm so excited to start!

  2. Thanks so much for putting this list together. Easy access!

  3. Ooh, how exciting! I'm looking forward to making my way down the list.

  4. WOW - What a great line up of storytellers. I am a storyteller of a strange kind. My daughter grew up on mine - they come from a place I do not know… they just come. I loved those days. She's twenty-eight now and we often reminisce about my stories.

    I will be checking this list out as I make my way around the A to Z. Have fun.
