Denise McCormack

Denise McCormack values and promotes the art, craft, and practice of the oral tradition of storytelling and offers programs and insights for a variety of purposes.

According to McCormack whose mantra is “There is a story for every time and purpose under heaven,”

Stories, even and especially the simple folk and fable, shine a light on little things that have far reaching implications, including the power to draw us together in community.

Among McCormack’s favorites are tales of aged heroes and strong, wise women; creation tales, myths, and epics that speak of values and perseverance; and both prose and poetry that bring to life the magic of our glorious world. Of course, you’ll also find her singing ditties with kiddies and offering stories to grow on, too!

McCormack has been a featured teller at local, regional, and national venues, including the National Storytellers Network conferences (KS, CA),NJ Storytelling Festivals (Grounds for Sculpture and Howell Living History Farm), and Philadelphia stages (The Rotunda, Parkway Central Library main stage, etc.), NYC’s Artists Without Borders, Godfrey Daniels (Bethlehem, Pa),and many others.

Among her many roles, McCormack is president of the Patchwork Storytelling Guild, coordinator and creative director of the Lehigh Valley Family Storytelling Series, liaison for the National Storytelling Network, and an active member of various other local and national organizations wherein storytelling and the arts play an integral role.
