Words are potent! Words are powerful symbols of communication. Human history and culture has largely been recorded by way of the spoken and written word, and storytelling has played an integral part of human existence. People make sense of their own lives through the stories of others. From the medieval days of travelling troubadours to the present day columns in celebrity magazines and rhyming lyrics of rappers, stories have served to illuminate our deepest desires, highlighting our hopes and fears, embodying our flares of anger and the flames of our passion.
