"Your newsletter is a great read!!!! Thanks for your generousity!" - Thom Coates, Jackson, MS
"As an administrator, I find your newsletter to be a constant source of inspiration. Most email newsletters are worthless. This one is a goldmine." - Ellen Riordan, Children's Coordinator, Enoch Pratt Free Library, Baltimore, MD.
"A quick scan showed me a few areas I can't wait to really read well and learn from. Thank you for sharing your thoughts and tips!" - Helena Kaufman, Writer and Consultant, Manitoba, Canada

"Very informative!" - Don Doyle, Mesa, AZ
"Thank you for extending a helping hand to the many semi-professional storytellers by sharing your skills. I do believe that your theory of "buddying" is accurate. We all need other tellers with whom we can share problems and successes. Thank you for giving storytelling the high priority it needs and deserves." - Cathy Whittemore, Stratham, NH
"Invaluable material" - Paul and Elsie Stiffler, Villa Park, IL

"I sure appreciate getting the etips, and this vocal one [Number 12 Are you neglecting your voice?] is a great reminder to us all... We should not take our instruments for granted, that's for sure. Thanks, and be very well as we go into the cold and dark time of year." - Jeannine Laverty, Saratoga Springs NY


"What you've provided in this newsletter [Number 9 What Are Stories Made Of?] is a wonderful confirmation, and affirmation, for me to share with others. Thanks, once again, for your gracious sharing of such an informative e-newsletter." - Lyn Ford, Columbus, OH
"I think this information about encouraging storytellers [Number 23: Why Can't Johnny Tell?] is helpful for encouraging self-expression in writing, too. I want all teachers, grandparents, and parents (and the children in their lives) to have it." - Lynne Burns (Ilion, NY)
"I throughly enjoy and print out all the valuable information and put it in my personal binder to refer to from time to time. Many thanks!" - Rob McCabe, Storyteller, Michigan
"The newsletter is so generous, and so TIMELY! [Number 18 Do You Want to Spend More Time on Your Art?] I am just now cobbling together a storytelling business plan for an organization here that helps folks get started in small businesses. The points on marketing are GREAT-GREAT-GREAT and wil be handy for my little company with the big name, Mythopoetica. SO, I thank you and wish you a grand day" - Abegael Fisher-Lang, British Columbia, Canada

"Your concrete suggestions on the work of storytelling have stayed with me... the ripples continue."- Joan King, Telford, PA

"In my work as a bereavement facilitator, the concepts and resources that you have generously shared are a touchstone that I refer to often and have enabled me, in turn, to be of service to others. In my work on the executive board of a non-profit organization, I have used your model of listening and appreciating to improve communication, clarify goals and further the board's ability to serve our membership. Thank you for your insight, your experience and your willingness to share what you know." - Gail Rosen, Storyteller and Bereavement Counsellor, Pikesville, MDA

They really helped - and the audience really liked the story!" - Jill Johnson, Whidbey Island, WA
"Thanks so much for including me on your mailing list. I had meant to let you know sooner how much I enjoyed the first two issues I received. It's particularly helpful since we are now living out in the woods and I have no real storytelling community close by." - Jeannine Pasini Beekman, Benton, LA
"I enjoyed the eTips # 2. It put into words the vision I originally had for storytelling. It fits me like a glove.... The information age has left me out in the cold as I really have no tech. knowledge or wisdom to provide for the business world. However, with the arrival of an experience economy all is changed." - Wesley August, Public Speaker, Moultonboro, NH
"Thank you for the tips. As a novice storyteller, I really appreciate the suggestions... I am keeping all the newsletters, because you have shared some really valuable advice. Thank you." - Martha Bishop, Bethel, CT
