Hello friends! 
If you haven't had the opportunity to attend the Timpanogos Storytelling Conferencelet me tell you, it is a treat. Imagine sitting with some of your favorite storytellers from the summer festival and getting to know them on a whole new level while learning the secrets of their craft. I had the opportunity to attend a series of workshops in August 2012 and it was a wonderful experience. Not only was I entertained by stories, but I also learned very practical tips for creating and enhancing my own stories. From Kim Weitkamp, I learned the importance of filling my children's moral warehouse with stories and how to use storyboxing and memory maps to flesh out those stories. From Antonio Sacre I learned the practical realities of publishing children's books. He also taught some great ways to gather story ideas, which has been useful in my family and personal history work as well.

This year I'm so excited to see what I can learn from Andy Offutt Irwin and Kevin Kling, as well as from other storytellers and presenters who I know will become new favorites for me. While my background is in teaching, I have found that these classes are useful in my family history work, my parenting, and can be so helpful in business as well. Almost everyone has opportunities to connect with others through stories. This conference is your chance to enhance your storytelling skills.

The full conference lasts two days, Friday and Saturday, March 14-15th. For those whose time is limited or who just want to check out the conference, then you might enjoy the free pre-conference concert or the free workshops for teachers and family historians.  Try it! You just might find yourself recommending it to friends this time next year.     -Kim McCloskey
