"Not only is Jackie Wright an excellent, accomplished storyteller, she is a very hard worker. Her support for NSN has been exemplary, always promoting MO-TELL and Missouri as a great state for the art of storytelling. We are so happy to have Jackie as our treasurer!”
Perrin Stifel, emeritus board member
Hi! I am Jackie Wright. I have been a storyteller since 1995. I live in University City, MO in St. Louis County. I was on the St. Louis Storytelling Festival Planning Committee for many years until the St. Louis County Library System became its home in 2022. I am a member of River and Prairie Storyweavers and St. Louis Gateway Storytellers, as well as MO-Tell. I have been a member of the National Storytelling Network (NSN) since 1998. As Missouri State Liaison for NSN, I provide a vital link between NSN and its Missouri members.
As a lifetime member of MO-Tell and past Vice-President, I feel that a member should be an active participant when they have the time, and when given the opportunity to be more involved.
So when the call came from Sue Hinkel saying that her term was up as treasurer and she asked if I would consider the position, I said yes. The board accepted my nomination, so I am happy to be your
new treasurer and board member.
