Linda Marchisio, Storyteller

 "Stories can be guides through life crisis, stepping stones to learning, and fanciful fun." L. Marchisio

Linda is an animated and expressive storyteller who frequently uses song, dance, and audience participation. Her stories travel to far-off countries, into your playful imagination, and touch the spirit.

Performances are available for both adults and children.  Performances include a selection of stories that remind us that liars usually get fooled, music and dance can make your heart sing, and that family stories can make you laugh and cry. She has performed her fanciful folktales, original stories, and family memories in a variety of venues from schools, to parks, to libraries, and festivals.

Learning How to Tell workshops are available for adults and children.  She has experience teaching beginners from grade 3 to grade 12 to adults how to tell stories.  Linda also offers PeanutButter Poetry Jam comprised of creative poetry writing activities leading into a poetry jam performance by the participants.  Her Snippet Story workshop encourages participants to tell personal and family stories based on a photograph or family artifact.  Custom designed workshops available.
