This is the ideal course to lead you out of lockdown and into something completely new, something you’ve never done before, but want to start now: Storytelling! With Stella Kassimati

If you've ever wondered what it would be like to tell a traditional story or a myth...

.... if you’ve ever thought “I could never remember all that”, if you’ve ever worried about standing up in front of an audience to speak, then this could be just the course for you, 

By the end of the weekend you’ll have a traditional story under your belt, gained confidence in speaking in front of others and go away with some hot tips on how best to tell a story. All this will take place in a Covid-safe and supportive atmosphere at Emerson College, with plenty of fun to allow you to unfold your natural creativity and begin storytelling now!

No experience and an open heart are the requirements for this course.

This course is the recommended first step into Storytelling at the School of Storytelling, Emerson College.


“In just a short weekend, Stella really set the foundations for my storytelling. I was amazed at how much I learnt and how often I come back to the advice that she gave me. She brought her warm heart and her playful energy, and made the weekend magical.”  Chris Adriaanse, U.K. Begin it Now! 2017 with Stella.

“The course was magical. I would like to do more workshops with Stella.” Seung-Ah Kim, Korea, opening a window to Greek Myths 2019

“I found this course excellent, informative and inspiring laced with warmth, humour and encouraging support.” Mary Barnes, U.K. Opening a Window to Greek Myths 2019

“I appreciated Stella’s warmth and her gentle and encouraging style. The workshop was playful and fun and a bit magical at times. A real pleasure. It leaves me with a real pointer for how to work with stories. I leave with many images to ‘cook with’ and reflect upon...” Pam, U.K Opening a Window to Greek Myths 2019

“It was an excellent experience and I appreciated the experiential and playful way storytelling was taught. I would redo it and recommend it to others” Nicole Voillat, Switzerland, Opening a Window to Greek Myths 2019



Stella Kassimati is an experienced workshop leader and storyteller. She teaches around the world in both Greek and English, including at Emerson College and Schumacher College, UK. Stella loves Greek myths and offers workshops on how relevant they are to us today. She has a deep passion for biographical storytelling and for enabling adults to craft and publicly perform their own or family tales with the goal of reconnecting with what it is to be human, increasing empathy and creating community. She loves teaching the craft of the storyteller because it gives people a voice and empowers them to bring more of themselves into the world and make a difference.
