This was Meg's first storytelling event, her final week of our beginner's class, and it led to her have this story published: http://www.elephantjournal.com/2016/02/how-embracing-the-unknown-helped-me-shed-200-pounds/
Meg Zepfel earned her Masters in Gerontology at USC’s Davis School and her Doctor of Chiropractic at Southern California University of Health Sciences. She is working towards her diplomate in functional neurology while practicing chiropractic and functional medicine at The Center for Integrative Medicine in her native Sherman Oaks, CA. She is fascinated by the role narrative plays in healing during the patient encounter and is inspired daily by her own patient’s stories of illness and health. http://www.drmegzepfel.com

Mark Tweddle hosts the YouTellYours podcast - where we share with you, stories from our storytelling classes.
This podcast is supported by QuirkyBranding.com, providing video and digital marketing to businesses that recognise the power of compelling, true stories. The truth is quirky, and it’s the quirky stories that get shared.
YouTellYours.com was started by Lynn Ferguson after becoming embroiled in the storytelling community in Los Angeles. If you love this form of storytelling then you’ve probably already heard of The Moth on Public Radio and maybe you’ve seen Lynn tell stories and host events for The Moth.
YouTellYours is based on Lynn’s realisation that the techniques of storytelling for books and plays and films, sub plots, story arcs and the like… aren’t as immediately relevant to spoken word storytelling. Lynn first started teaching classes in the Sidewalk Studio Theatre in Burbank and now, using the same techniques and exercises, we’ve added an online course so that no matter where you live, you can learn to tell your story without notes, props or the dreaded Powerpoint.
