Susy Irwin, storyteller




Susy Irwin is a Northwest storyteller and puppeteer. She has been creating programs for children and entertaining audiences of all ages for many years. Susy specializes in telling animal stories, tall and true. She also creates vignettes from her travels; compositions of life adventures interwoven with folktales. Her stories bring to life oral tradition and rich folklore of diverse cultures around the world.

Susy tells stories at:

  • Schools

Stories have traditionally given us knowledge of why things were the way they were. Today, stories continue to teach us, make us think, and most importantly, stretch our imagination.

An educator by training, and a storyteller by trade, I create stories to stir the imagination and heart of the listener. I seek to increase awareness and understanding through the sharing of stories from many countries.
