STORY SPINNER & WORD WEAVER
I am listed on the Traditional Arts and Culture Scotland directory as a professional storyteller (http://www.tracscotland.org/tracs/storytelling). This means that I have undergone a period of apprenticeship to learn this traditional craft and was mentored by experienced storytellers. I have an enhanced disclosure and extensive experience working in the community. As such anyone who books me may be eligible for subsidy through the Live Literature Fund (LLF) scheme, administered by Scottish Book Trust. I have taken the information below from TRACS, so you can view the recommend rates. However I am more than happy to discuss a discounted rates for charities and community organisations.
