#34 • Amy Preston-Samson (Season 2, Episode 3)

The Witches by Amy Preston-Samson

This week, we have a story from Amy Preston-Samson, PhD candidate and first-time storyteller. She told this story for the 6th anniversary of Confabulation Montreal. Our theme that night was, Now we are six — stories of childhoods lost and found.

Amy developed this story after working in a group workshop which inspired Montreal’s own Confab Story lab. If you’re interested in taking a public workshop, you can get more info here.

This episode also featured Bonnie Harnden – she’s an Associate Professor and practicum coordinator, in Drama Therapy, and Creative Arts Therapies at Concordia University in Montreal.

#33 • Sage Tyrtle (Season 2, Episode 2)

This week, we hear a story from Sage Tyrtle – a Toronto-based storyteller, writer and performer. She’s the host and producer of High Stakes Storytelling — check out their podcast too. Sage originally told this story in Toronto, at our very first Confabulation. The theme was only fitting: Firsts.
