Donald's presentation is so much fun you won't believe it's a writing course! His process works for children, parents, teachers, students - anyone who wants to learn how to begin creating their own stories.
Donald Davis - "When I was a child I hated writing! I felt I had no imagination, no creativity, and no ideas. No one showed me that I had within myself all the material I would ever need for telling and writing stories. Now, as a professional storyteller, I give 300 performances each year of stories I've created using the technique shown in this video. It is always a joy to me to hear what comes from students, teachers, and parents as they participate in this process. Enjoy!"
