Our workshop in Oxford, April 2014 was delivered by two professional storytellers, Jenny Moon and Daniel Morden.

Jenny Moon

Jenny Moon has been working with story and as a storyteller for a number of years. Storytelling grew out of work in counselling and hypnotherapy, from her work in higher education, running day long workshops with the attendant need to engage with participants, and from a love of writing and story. Jenny works part-time in higher education, mostly working on improving learning and teaching with lecturers. She has written 9 books – many of which are relevant to storytelling – on reflective learning. The last one is called ‘The use of story in higher education and professional development’.

Daniel Morden

Daniel Morden is one of Britain’s leading exponents in the art of storytelling. For 24 years he has delighted audiences all over the world with his performances including the Vancouver, Oslo and Yukon storytelling festivals, The Hay, Beyond The Border, Bath and Cheltenham festivals and at venues such as The Barbican, The National Theatre and The British Museum. He has also worked on television and radio, has won awards and has published books for both children and adults.
