Telling Stories to Children is a site devoted to the annual workshop of the same name. Judith Black has offered this workshop every year for the last dozen or so years in her home in the historic seaport town of Marblehead, MA. It's the only workshop that I know of that includes:
instruction from an expert in the genre
individualized coaching at the workshop site AND
a chance to try out a story with children in a typical, but not-too-demanding situation
Read the full descriptions of what happens during four days in Marblehead, who should come, and much more.
The Hasidic Stories Home Page (http://www.hasidicstories.com) provides articles, a bibliography, texts of a few Hasidic stories, opportunities to add your own favorite Hasidic stories and experiences with Hasidic stories, and "Hasidic Stories: an Annotated Internet Guide."
Plus - you can now sign up for the free, monthly Hasidic Messenger newsletter - which sends you the featured story or article each month, via email. If you prefer, get the Hasidic Update, which just sends you a notice that a new story has been posted, along with a description of it.
