Creative Writing Using the Folktale as a Model
Joseph Bruchac – Author/Storyteller Visit, Native American (Abenaki) writer, storyteller and musician
Northeastern Native American cultures, histories and traditions through my writing and storytelling or workshop programs in which students write their own poems and stories and/or do their own storytelling. Also, themes of respect for one’s self and others, conflict resolution, and character development are built into all of my presentations.
The world is full of narratives, in stories, in songs, in how we experience our everyday lives. Alicia Quintano began telling her own stories when she was in 5th grade to her little sister in the middle of the night. Since then she has written stories and songs for performance and taught writing workshops across the country at diverse venues including colleges and universities; libraries; parks; schools; and arts festivals. Her goal as a writing teacher is to encourage students to take joy in tapping their own creativity and to share their stories with confidence when reading aloud.
