Designated an American Masterpiece Touring Artist by the NEA, Elizabeth Ellis grew up in the Appalachian Mountains. A children’s librarian at Dallas Public Library before becoming a professional storyteller, the “Divine Miss E” is a versatile, riveting teller of Appalachian and Texas tales and stories of heroic American women, though her personal stories are arguably her best. Invariably hilarious and poignant, she is a repeated favorite at the National Storytelling Festival.  She is a recipient of the John Henry Faulk Award from Tejas Storytelling Association and the Circle of Excellence Award from  National Storytelling Network.  She has mesmerized nearly a million children in her thirty-year career as a professional storyteller.

     Elizabeth is also well known for her workshops, which offer training for beginning and seasoned storytellers.  Inviting the Wolf In: Thinking About Difficult Stories, which she co-authored with Loren Niemi has been described by NAPRA ReView as a “great leap forward in the literature of how to put stories together with art and truth”. It received a Storytelling World Award. Her current book From Plot to Narrative is a guidebook for meningful story crafting and has won both a Storytelling World Award and an Anne Izard Storytellers Choice Award.
