“We are still talking about how amazing it was and how fantastic you are. We will definitely have you back.”
(Rebecca Lawrence, Cradley CE Primary School)


Welcome to the Storyjohn website

I'm John Edgar, a writer and storyteller living in Wolverhampton in the West Midlands of the UK.  I work a lot in education and the wider community, and have also written extensively for theatre, corporate film and BBC Radio.  I used to be an actor, but the arrival of two children changed all that. At the moment, this site is about several things, including:
My work as a writer and storyteller in education
My work as a writer and storyteller in the wider community

My work as a performer.
