Curriculum / Resume:

FRAN STALLINGS has been a professional teller of ancient folktales and original creations since 1982, and served as an Artist In Residence with the Oklahoma Arts Council 1985-2001. Her performance tours have taken her to Japan, Egypt, Singapore, Hong Kong and Macau as well as nationwide in the U.S.A.

Fran grew up in the tradition of oral storytelling, and has always loved the ancient heritage of tales we all share. Her degrees in biology (Wellesley College, University of Wisconsin) were not a detour: her folktales and "fact-tales" of our fellow creatures and the environment have earned her the title Earthteller, helping zoo docents and park rangers become story-teachers. She has collected a repertory of nearly 400 traditional tales plus original stories and songs.

Fran's articles and stories are widely reprinted. She has produced 5 CDs.
