Welcome to the website of Anne E Stewart.
Storyteller, writer, broadcaster, MC and public speaker. When you've been telling stories as long as I have, (starting in 1977) a diversity of jobs and storytelling experiences come your way. I have told stories in some of Australia’s major cultural institutions, art galleries, schools and libraries as well as on ABC radio and TV. I have been an invited guest at Storytelling festivals throughout Australia, the UK and in Mexico, Colombia and Iran. I've developed skills to be a consummate MC with the ability to create shows tailored to audience needs. I run storytelling workshops and masterclasses, and lately have started to develop my digital storytelling skills.
Please browse the website to learn more about the art of storytelling, or stay a while and listen to a story of two.
I focus on the shared stories of Australia honouring Indigenous, Celtic, Asian and World stories.
“Anne is an acclaimed storyteller with an international reputation, a versatile performer she has the energy and voice to engage any audience,
Her telling is a unique cultural experience. ”

"Anne E Stewart - Annie - is one of Australia's prime storytellers with a velvet voice that can swing from croon to boom... and piercing eyes, hailing from one of Australia's legendary creative families of artists and rebels..."

Cockatoo Dreaming: I live in the Hepburn Shire Victoria original homelands to the Dja Dja Wurrung People. They believe the souls of their ancestors live in the birds. 'The Eagle is Lord of the Forest and Mountain, the crow is lord of the hills and plains and the Bat is regarded as a friendly sprite that watched over the lonely and weary traveller warning him of danger and guiding him to safety'. I reckon I'll be coming back as a Cockatoo, screeching and squawking and still telling stories
