Subject: RE: Story selection - storytelling to adults
Thank you all for your tips and comments! Hi there Ewan! It's Diane Taylor, the lady who brought a topsy-turvy doll to your workshop up in Edinburgh in the spring. Nice to see you again! Hope to be up in Edinburgh for the storytelling festival later this autumn; maybe bump into you again.

I've had some disappointing news this morning folks. I was hoping to get some experience in a nursery, specifically the Sure Start nurseries hereabouts. I did a few stints at one nursery but it didn't work out. It wasn't a supportive environment. They really didn't seem to have very much idea about what storytellers do. Eventually we parted company.

I'm in touch with a lady from a volunteering agency; she's trying to get me experience. She was in touch with another Sure Start; sadly they are asking potential volunteers to go on a training course and get qualifications in general nursery work before they are accepted as volunteers. I probably can't afford the time or money to do that. I suppose there are other nurseries... Very disappointing.
