Thanks for inviting me to come and share stories with your group. We will have lots of fun as our imaginations soar to different times and places. Here is a short blurb, if you would like to use it in any publicity for the event:

Marilyn Kinsella, Taleypo the Storyteller, of Fairview Heights, IL, has been telling stories since 1981. She tells stories “…from nursery schools to nursing homes.” Her folktales come from many cultures with lots of participation for the young listener. Her stories are full of energy and a delicate blend of action and word imaging. As a full-time, free-lance teller she travels to where stories want to be told. Besides telling, she often leads workshops, gives keynote addresses, and performs puppet plays. She has told stories to hundreds of schools in the Midwest and has been featured at many festivals including The St. Louis Storytelling Festival Under the Arch, The Cape Girardeau Storytelling Festival, and The Illinois Storytelling Festival. For more information visit her website at .

Following this cover page you will find a copy of my contract, an invoice for your organization's records, and a picture to reproduce for publicity. Please send the signed contract back to me at the address below.

Tales alive,

Marilyn Kinsella,
