We've heard it all before... we rejoice in the retelling!

Missouri Storytelling, Inc.  (MO-TELL)

 

Welcome to the home of Missouri Storytelling, Inc. MO-TELL

MO-TELL was established in 1984 as Missouri's leading storytelling group for storytellers and listeners alike with the intention to promote and perpetuate storytelling throughout the state.

Throughout our history we have successfully reached Missourians by providing storytelling in the Missouri State Parks.  Currently we provide storytellers to 12 state parks and/or historic sites in Missouri.  We are seeking support to continue and increase our scope of venues and audiences.

Ric told stories to children for nineteen years as a school librarian. He loves telling stories that use laughter, sound effects, and characters with a message that students can take home. His tales engage his listeners, drawing on his background as a professional jazz musician, to enliven the stories with sound and movement.
 

Ric has performed as a regional storyteller at the St. Louis Storytelling Festival for the past seven years and will appear again this year. He received his training in the art of storytelling from Lynn Rubright , Bobby Norfolk, Annette Harrison, Sue Hinkle, and Ken Wolfe.
