Coming Soon

Go Tell It On The Mountain – online course this July
A new online course offered by Michael Harvey…..
It’s called Go Tell It On The Mountain and is aimed at those interested in using story and story making for healing and change. The course is delivered online.

This is different to his normal offering of practical, hands-on ‘how to tell stories better’ training. No previous storytelling experience is required.

This course is aimed at anyone who is interested in the depth and resonance of traditional narrative and wants to enter deeply and playfully into story in order to re-weave the strands into new and resonant storylines.

Michael has facilitated story making sessions with all ages for over twenty years and will be using some examples from co-created stories as a stimulus as well as telling you short traditional stories from near and far. The methods are clear and effective and can be used and adapted for your own future use.

He has been coaching online since before lockdown and, after Covid hit, moved all his training onto zoom. After delivering four courses online I am a convert to zoom as a teaching medium with the caveat that we don’t spend too long staring at the screen. This course will be mornings only in order to give you a chance to re-charge in the afternoon.

Hello everyone

in this newsletter we have some news about an exciting new community project about Tide Mills, the ruined village which lies along the coast between Newhaven and Seaford. The organisers are looking for storytellers, writers, poets and other creative people to collaborate in a heritage project about the village which will take place in September 2021.
“Tide Mills has an incredible history – in its relatively short lifetime it was home not only to the pioneering Tidal Mills built on the site in 1761, but also a WW1 seaplane station, racing stables, a radio station, a beach hospital, and even a pineapple pit! The last residents of the village were evicted during WW2 and the village fell into ruin, so we’re delighted to have an opportunity to bring this unique history alive as never before!”
Phil Rose, LYT Productions’ Artistic Director

If you’re interested in participating in any capacity – they are particularly keen on storytellers – you can find out more about the project here:
https://tidemillsproject.uk/
If you’d like to take part, please use the contact link on the website to contact the organisers directly. 

We’d also like to remind you about the Goddess Festival, organised by Xanthe Gresham and funded by Arts Council England. The first two events were groundbreaking, inventive and inspiring and Umi from the GuestHouse Storytellers is delighted to be taking part in this month’s episode about Mothers and Migration and talking about her writing, good mothers and wicked stepmothers (including her own mother), and Indian goddesses in conversation with her daughter.
Here’s a link to the event, which is on March 25th. Tickets are free or by donation, and you can register for any or all sessions here.

If you would like to see previous sessions they are now on Youtube. I would particularly recommend Amy Sutton’s brilliant performance of Inanna descending into the underworld, which you can watch here. It starts at 58.44.
