Calum Lykan, Edinburgh storyteller with Erin Dingle, Calgary poet

This years World Storytelling Day theme is Wise Fools, so we propose to do a wee set of poems and stories based on that theme, I off course will be storytelling and the fabulous Erin doing some poems. ~ Calum Lykan

Calum Lykan, a weaver of dreams, a teller of tales. Having traveled extensively telling stories Calum is now making Calgary his home.

Scottish and Irish folk tales and legends, Norse and Greek myths, tales from Europe, Asia, America are just some of the stories that Calum likes to tell.

A passionate and energetic teller with a style that engages younger audiences, teenagers and adults alike, Calum has told in libraries, schools, community centres, public houses, theatres, festivals and even on the street. Life is breathed into the story with each telling and Calum’s passion for storytelling drives him to take every opportunity to entertain and give the gift of the story.

Erin Dingle tells it like it is. Whether it’s sad, silly, science or NSFW, she “takes that confused feeling or idea you’ve never had words for and paints it into poetry you’ll understand.”

Dingle talked their way onto the Finals stage at the Canadian Independent Poetry Slam competition five years in a row. In 2016, they received the first Zaccheus Jackson Nyce Memorial Award for Poetry and Community Spirit.

Dingle has rocked the mic for Ted-X, the YWCA, CanLearn, Alberta Culture Days, as well as numerous festivals and events across North America. She also facilitates youth and adult workshops on emotional exploration and understanding through creative writing.”
