Happy new year everyone. I think it値l be a good one as there are so many wonderful projects happening and so many different forms of storytelling emerging.
I had a wonderful year in 2013, working as a Story Consultant on various projects while studying my Diploma of Education (Secondary English & Drama) full time. This year I知 looking forward to a mix of outdoor guide work, storytelling projects, writing and casual teaching in local schools. 

I知 enjoying working deeply with story, with a sense of flow in and between projects. The end of 2013 brought me great joy with the combination of graduating from my Dip Ed, publishing our book Education Dreaming (a literacy project with local Aboriginal women)

and telling stories around a campfire in a tipi on the Deua River to celebrate solstice.


As I dream about 2014 and wonder what it will bring, I知 delighted to have started the year with an interview on SBS Radio (the Czech Program) talking about my work with Bohemian Fairy Tales, and the love I have developed for both the stories and the story writer, Bozena Nemcova. The interview is in English and Czech I hope you enjoy listening.

I知 looking forward to continuing my work with children and families in rural and remote communities. It was very exciting to have the opportunity to travel to outback South Australia with the RICE team, presenting creative playdays around the themes of beach, Aussie animals and fairy tales. RICE is a unique mobile service which travels far distances over rugged terrain to reach outback families, and provide opportunities for the children and families to meet each other and play together.

Wishing you all a wonderful 2014 full of stories, magic and joy. I look forward to seeing you on the river, kayaking at sea, or somewhere in storyland.
