A storyteller since 1987 (though her mother claims she has been performing stories since she was five), Elizabeth Matson is a spinner of tales, weaving magic into her renditions of traditional tales and real life narratives for children, teens, and adults. Elizabeth incorporates creative drama, yoga, and her love of language into her performances and workshops. She offers workshops on collecting and shaping stories, family storytelling, storytelling for librarians, and beginning storytelling. Her story specialties include ghost stories, fairy tales, myths, and family stories.

She is the co-author, with Stuart Stotts, of The Bookcase Ghost: A Storyteller’s Collection of Wisconsin Ghost Stories (Midwest Traditions, 1996). She holds a MA in Folklore, MS in Library Science, and is a Registered Yoga Teacher.
