Christine Hennebury

I'm a Mount Pearl, NL-based storyteller, writer, and creative life coach who likes to make the most of the connection-building power of stories. 

I am the founder and chair of the Association for the Arts in Mount Pearl, the acting Vice-President and Training Liaison for the SC-CC, and I am a former President of Storytelling St. John's.


I have been telling stories professionally since 2009 and I have been a frequent performer and host at the St. John's Storytelling Festival and the Storytelling St. John's Monthly Story Circle, as well as at a number of local schools and events. 

I enjoy telling a variety of myths, folktales, and personal stories and I particularly like sharing versions that take a different point of view - seeing a villain from a new perspective, or centering the actions of a character who would normally be seen as passive.

Here's a video of one of my current favourites: Lorelei 


I offer a variety of storytelling and story-based workshops including, but not limited to, the following:

  • Get Started in Storytelling
  • Beyond Beginning, Middle, End: Adding Strength to Your Story Arc
  • Balancing Showing and Telling
  • Finding Personal Strength in Stories
  • The (short) Story of You: Creating Artist Bios With Ease
  • Putting Stories to Work For You (workplace communication)
  • Adding to Their Story: A Storyteller's Approach to Grant Applications
  • Creating Creative Habits
  • How Stories Build Empathy
  • How Creativity Builds Community
  • Stop Thinking and Write


I provide story-based coaching for individuals who are feeling 'stuck' or who need help with problem-solving and I help frustrated creatives find their way back to regular creative practice.
