Workshops and Training Sessons
"I wish you could hear the comments that keep buzzing around here. ‘Mary Grace is a born storyteller.” ‘I keep thinking about Miss Annie and how Mary Grace became Miss Annie before our eyes....’ Thank you again for opening our conference with such a provocative program."
Kathryn Robinson, Brazos Writers’ Conference, College Station, Texas
"To know someone who is both wonderfully analytical and articulate is a treat indeed. Add to that her passion for storytelling in general and you've got the whole package."
Donna Ingham, Texas Tale Teller
"Thank you for yet another elegant gift of story...I believe that we created or opened ourselves up to create a magic place/magic space. What happened in that magic space? Can't say exactly, but I know the climate was ripe for transformation."
Rev. Phil Schulman
