You’re a Story Magician!
Each of you have stories to tell or write or draw, so let’s get started! Through word games from Marsha’s popular “Funshops” we will get warmed up. Then Marsha will read one of her stories, provide story prompts for a magical story of your own, and share her much-loved Storymagician Chant.
Marsha has been called a “Story Magician” herself by the media. “Way out in a mysterious land, there lives a magical woman named Marsha Diane Arnold. Known to many children of the land, Arnold is a magician of literary innovations, which is to say that she is a writer. Arnold’s stories are funny, and exciting, and make you feel stuff. What’s especially wonderful about her books is their underlying attitude of affection and respect…” - David Templeton
