Denise McCormack

(Mercer County)

Denise McCormack, M.Ed., tells for purposes of entertainment, education, and community, as well as health and well-being.  
Her story selections are meaningful to connect listeners to their own experiences which, in turn, foster empathy and understanding of self and others.  

Currently, her productions of story focus on the on-going plight of women, civil rights, and autonomy. Her stories range from fable, folk, fairy, literary, and personal. They are appropriate for all ages, are ideal for adult audiences, and are meant to evoke discussion, and her performances have earned high praise and have been showcased at various venues throughout the region and in collaboration with Philly Theatre Week and Philadelphia Fringe Festival, among others. She has also been featured nationally at conferences.

McCormack’s interests culminate in her applied storytelling initiatives: MYOB: Mind Your Own Body; The Story Algorithm; and the Magicwords101 Project.
