Jackie Kerin - Writer - Storyteller

I’m a storyteller.

I practice the traditional art of spoken story.

This ancient art predates the book. It could be said that the tradition of storytelling is connected to the book like blossom to fruit.

Tellable Tales

My favourite stories are those of my own creation. My current passion involves collecting unique Australian historical tales and putting them into language for telling. These wonderful stories belong to us all. I’ve recorded some of my 'Tellable Australian Tales' for you to use and enjoy.

I also love giving life to traditional folk tales from around the world. It’s a joy to release these jewels from the page and put them back on the tongue.

Current projects


I’m happy to be contacted and enjoy linking with other storytellers and writers and I regularly update my blog – so you can share some of the adventures of this roving wordsmith.

I’m a member of Storytelling Australia (Victoria), a group dedicated to this ancient art.

I live in the traditional lands of the Kulin Nation.
My home is in country that has long been mapped by story.
