Guyana: Edutainment with Poetry and Storytelling – by Francis Quamina Farrier

Edutainment with Poetry and Storytelling – by Francis Quamina Farrier 
Back in Guyana’s Jubilee Year, 2016, I was invited by the National Library to be a member of a team to go to schools and do Sessions of Poetry and Storytelling sessions. The team went to many schools on the West Bank and West Coast Demerara, as well as to the East Bank Essequibo in Region Number Three.
It all went so well, that I decided to continue solo, doing FREE Poetry and Storytelling Sessions around and about Guyana ever since. The project was even extended east across the Atlantic to Ghana, which was done while I was on a visit to that West African country. The sessions are for half an hour duration; twenty minutes of my actual Poetry and Storytelling, and ten minutes for questions, comments and criticisms by the students.
