Your Story Will Be Heard: An all-ages storytelling workshop


Facilitator: David Roche


Stories build community—so your first assignment will be to listen and to look at the storyteller with warm eyes to help bring out the storyteller's deepest truth. Then you will offer appreciation. We may ask for a time limit so that everyone gets a chance. All levels of experience, all ages welcome but story content and style is entirely up to the person telling the story. We love shy storytellers because they tend to save their words for exactly the right time.

All ages welcome with children 15 years and under accompanied by an adult.


David Roche has made a living as a storyteller and storytelling coach for thirty years from Melbourne to Moscow to Montreal—on stage, at the podium, in his book, on video and on film. He loves appearing with his wife Marlena in Sunshine Coast Schools.

What to Bring:

Water, power snacks, sturdy footwear, cushion and/or blanket or portable chairs you can hike in with.
