Dr. Kevin Cordi traverses around the country and world reminding others that there is rich value in play. His work has been modeled in schools and storytelling organizations around the country. He has been a gas station attendant, grill cook, door-to-door salesperson, and a bus boy. All of this has helped him want to be involved in play more. Whether he is working with a teenager to mix a fairy tale, listening to a whole company to tell their story of their business better, or performing for a crowd of 1000, he uses play because this is where the true work is found in story crafting.
Cordi shares new methods of story crafting from his recently released recognized book Playing with Stories: Story Crafting for Writers, Teachers, Storytellers, and other Imaginative Thinkers (2014) and co-author with Judy Sima, Raising Voices: creating youth storytelling troupes and groups (2003).
