Great news, The Society for Storytelling is interested in my research and my research aims. Which is to see storytelling in schools throughout the UK.

“I’m pleased to confirm that the trustees agreed at last week’s meeting that supporting your research would be a worthwhile cause.” (Chip Colquhoun, Chair).

They are going to sign a letter of support to help me fund raise. At present I am seeking funding from 2013 to cover my 2nd and 3rd PhD years. With funding being so competitive this year I am thinking of new ways to raise funds. For example I am looking into a collaborative project with others. Being involved in research with more experienced persons is very exciting. I have already learnt a great deal and look forward to what is ahead–despite it being challenging. With a new spring in my step thanks to this support from the Society for Storytelling, more information will follow once something is confirmed.

Update: well, in case you were wondering I could not find any funding, instead I switched my PhD to parttime and took on three jobs to support myself. Finishing in four years, not bad! Now I keep in touch with my storytelling pals while writing, and helping others with their writing.
