Narrative skills are an increasingly valued part of an educators toolkit, applied to great effect in all sorts of settings and with a diverse range of client-groups. The craft of storytelling can be broken down into some fundamentals which once distinguished can assist the rapid improvement for those wishing to make use of it either as tellers in their teaching practise, professional storytellers, or to blend in with presentation skills they already have. Finding the right story at the right time is also a key area that the course will consider as well offering some coaching for individual work. Participants will then emerge from this enlivening and empowering process with tales to tell, and more confidence and understanding of how, why and where to tell stories. This course will also be taking place outside and looking at the environment and how tales can be told outside, using the environment as a stimulus.

Chris Salisbury is a well known environmental educator and storyteller, he founded WildWise after working for the Devon Wildlife Trust. After founding and directing the Westcountry Storytelling Festival since 2002, storytelling has become an important component in his work on courses around the world. Chris is also a drama therapist and has also been through the Be The Change symposium training programme.
