             TELLING PERSONAL TALES

                  A WORKSHOP WITH 

                      LOREN NIEMI

                  JANUARY 13, 2018

                            1-4 P.M.




STNM is sponsoring a workshop with nationally known teller, Loren Niemi, on the topic, "Telling Personal Tales," on January 13, 2018 at the Unitarian Universalist Church, Albuquerque.


​Loren Niemi is a teller of philosophically nuanced traditional and original tales and has been recognized by the National Storytelling Network for “lifetime achievement.” He performs, teaches workshops and coaches / directs performers, corporate and business professionals on how to effectively present complex or difficult material. Loren is also a published poet, the author of "The New Book of Plots" on narrative forms, and co-author with Elizabeth Ellis of the award winning "Inviting the Wolf In: Thinking About Difficult Stories" on the value and necessity of stories that are hard to hear and harder to tell. Loren is a National Storytelling Network Lifetime Achievement recipient. 


Storytelling is Loren's life's work and he sees it as an embodiment of Federico Fellini's statement, "I have invented myself entirely, a childhood, a personality, longings, memories and dreams, all in order to be able to tell them."


The workshop is from 1-4 p.m. and includes a refreshment break.  $25/person or $20 for STNM members.

Enrollment limited to 20 people.
