About Eshu Bumpus

Since teaching at a small, alternative elementary school in the mid 70s, I have worked with children in creative writing, theater and storytelling as teacher, After-school program and summer arts program director, and as a freelance artist for nearly 40 years. Over the years, I have developed many methods for making the story-writing process accessible and fun for students of all ages. My method is to break the writing process down into simple, conceptually accessible tasks so that students understand the structure and sequential nature of the story, engaging their imagination, their sense of humor and their sense of responsibility for what they communicate through their stories. *-*- *- *- *- *- *- - *- *- *- "I would like to thank Eshu Bumpus for the incredible work that he does with our students. He is inspirational and mesmerizes our students. He is able to reveal the story teller within everyone that he works with. Thank you for inspiring our students!"
