Storyteller Megan Hicks has a way with words.
Add her warm sense of humor and deep respect for anybody who is now or ever was a kid, and you’ve got an award-winning performer who captivates audiences of all ages and from all walks of life.
Today, Megan has earned an enviable reputation as a professional storyteller. She was featured as a New Voice at the National Storytelling Festival in 2011, and her credits range from small venues in rural America, to regional stages throughout the United States, and international programs on three continents.
Her awards include a Parents’ Choice® Silver for the CD, “What Was Civil About That War…” which was also a 2005 Finalist for an Audies® award in the category of Best Original Work. She received the Parents’ Guide to Children’s Media Award for “Groundhogs Meet Grimm,” a collection of her original parodies that was also tapped for Honors by NAPPA.
Megan is a sought-after workshop presenter and seminar leader, with credits at Florida StoryCamp, the Northlands Storytelling Conference, Sharing the Fire, the National Storytelling Conference, the Virginia Library Association, and ElderStudy, among others.
Her performance and presentation draw praises wherever she goes, and she takes her love of whimsy with her as she creates new stories and adaptations, and discovers new purposes for the “found objects” that continue to inspire her ingenuity.”
