Phoenix Storyteller Liz Warren: 100 Creatives

Phoenix is brimming with creativity. And every other year, we put the spotlight on 100 of the city's creative forces. Leading up to the release of this year's Best of Phoenix issue, we're profiling 100 more. Welcome to the 2014 edition of 100 Creatives. Up today: 13. Liz Warren.

Liz Warren wrote the book on storytelling.

No, really. The Phoenix-based creative wrote The Oral Tradition Today: An Introduction to the Art of Storytelling, a storytelling textbook that's used in classrooms across the country. She's also the director of the South Mountain Community College Storytelling Institute, where Warren, 60, teaches courses including Mythology, Creating and Telling Personal Stories, and The Art of Storytelling and Multicultural Folktales.
