Stories and News:
In the tradition of the Seanchai and the age old art of Storytelling, Patti Warnock aka La Contesse travels the globe, participating in festivals, teaching, collecting and sharing stories.
Her travels, the legacy of the Blarney stone and her Irish origins, her childhood in rural Quebec and northern Canada all blend to inspire her own mischievous creations.
The storyteller and teaching artist invites us to listen, to learn and to share our stories … Each of us has a voice and a story to heard.

Creative Approach and Experiences Offered

W.R.I.T.E. ® Storytelling and Creative Writing Workshops
Bringing Story to life!

The STORY, first used to stimulate the student’s interest, becomes a tool to develop language skills, to express ideas and to share emotions.

Whether choosing Fairy tales, Original Story Creation or Inter-generational workshop activities;
Students will discover new skills and gain confidence in their personal strengths and talents as they are guided individually (and as a group) through the creative process of producing a written text and/or an oral presentation.

Written and oral exercises include;
Creative thought
Organization, retention and assimilation of ideas
Improvisation and expression - words and gestures
Storyboard creation

The activities may be filmed or recorded.
Storyboards may be transformed into comic strips and/or original art projects.
The completed written or oral creation may be used for a live public presentation.

Workshops offered online or in person.
