Elinor is creating connection through storytelling

Hi. I'm Elinor.

I create an awful lot of different things: stories, songs and poems; visual art; yarncrafts; fiction; essays; courses and programmes; and magic. This Patreon is primarily to support my work in live storytelling performance, but I also talk and share about the other stuff from time to time.

Why storytelling?
Storytelling has been transformational in my life. From an early age, stories have been a portal for me: into other realities, other ways of being, other selves. Stories have healed, inspired, challenged, and remade me. Every story I tell in the traditional way, 'eye to eye, mind to mind, heart to heart', holds the potential to open such a magical portal, not only for myself but also for others. Using my voice, my body, and my energy to conjure the world of the story, I seek to create a shared moment of connection with self, community, place, and ancestors: to deepen roots, to nourish, to grow.

Storytelling and social change
Story is not only magical in its portal-creating properties; it also carries the magic of creating open space for difference, complexity, and paradox. This capacity is vital if we are to create social change in the direction of both inclusion and justice at the same time. I explore this aspect of storytelling in a variety of programmes and projects, focused on areas such as white supremacy and colonialism, gender justice, and environmental interconnection; some of these are open to the public, while others involve specific organisations or community groups. I share the process and results of these programmes and projects, as well as opportunities to take part, here on this Patreon.

About me
I’m a spiritual counsellor and coach, a storyteller, poet, singer and artist, a spoonie, a Marxist and intersectional feminist, a mystic, a geek, and a queer, genderfluid, bisexual Witch. I have a long and wide-ranging background in activism, community development, spiritual counselling, ritual work, and both formal and informal education. My work centres around the magic of creativity, of relating across difference, and of becoming alive to all that is present within and without us, here and now.

How to support me
1. Pledge as a patron! I have a number of support tiers available from $1 up.
2. If you want to support me, but don't have the resources (or simply don't want) to become a regular patron, you can make a one-off donation here: https://www.paypal.me/ElinorPredota
