Lynsey Wright's headshot

My name is Lynsey Wright and I am a registered storyteller. I now live in Edinburgh but grew up in a fishing town in the North East of Scotland. I recently retired from teaching and told stories throughout my career to try and help children to make sense of the world and try to tackle difficult issues. I can tell stories anywhere and it is important to me to have humour in my stories.
