Pick up a few pointers for telling your favourite story
In this video, storyteller Mara Menzies shares her top tips to help your inner storyteller shine.
We've summarised some of her 8 suggestions below!
7. Use your physicality
All storytellers use their bodies to help tell their stories.
Some people like making big movements and others like smaller movements - making tiny gestures with their hands, tilting their head, and leaning in towards their audience.
Try different things out and see what comes naturally!
8. Have fun!
Mara has saved the most important tip until last! If you're having fun, your audience will have fun too!
We hope you enjoy experimenting with your storytelling, whether you’re sharing a story with your family, spinning a yarn with your class or enthralling some friends with a great anecdote.
