Book Frances Logan
Frances enjoys telling stories. She tells stories at work, in schools, at storytelling clubs and anywhere else she can! She enjoys fairy tales, myths and legends from all over the world, often involving the audience with props and song.
Her love of stories comes from her mother. Every night at bedtime the journeys began and continued for many years. These varied tales were always told, never read – her mother’s arms free to hold and hug.
Frances’ use of and love of stories from all over the world stems from her work as an English for Speakers of Other Languages Tutor. She often uses stories of various genres as an aid, not only to develop student’s language skills but also to learn from her students. Frances has told in schools, colleges, museums, libraries and fairs to name a few. She has been involved in training events including residential weekends and has been a featured teller at events all over Scotland and Europe.
She is an ambassador for storytelling and for this she was presented with a Lifetime Achievement Award from Glasgow Storytellers and is a recipient of a Whuppity Scoorie Crown Brooch from South Lanarkshire Council for services to storytelling in South Lanarkshire. She is the organiser of the two oldest storytelling clubs in Glasgow; The Better Crack Club and The Even Better Crack Club and has been for many years.
