Tall Tales Told at Civic Center
The East Valley Tellers of Tales meets at Scottsdale’s Civic Center Library the second Saturday of each month at 10 a.m. The two-or-so hours it meets might be the most entertaining spot in all the Valley.
Liz Warren, of the East Valley Tellers of Tales, said:
“Modern storytellers tell folk tales, myths, legends, personal and family stories or those based on literature,”
Warren is also a storytelling instructor at
South Mountain Community College in Phoenix.
Storytelling is a craft and to learn that craft is to learn how to communicate effectively; how to hold an audience’s attention.
Students who earn a certificate in storytelling can use their knowledge in many occupations:
teachers, health workers, police officers, businessmen and women, ministers and tour guides, to name a few.
SMCC’s Storytelling Institute offers an array of formal classes, from Multicultural Folktales and Mythology, to Telling Personal Stories and Biographical Storytelling.
