I have always loved stories, ever since I can remember. I was read to at an early age which has given me a lifelong love of reading and discovering new and fantastic tales. I was fortunate to develop my storytelling skills at university as part of my performance studies degree where I encountered some of my favourite stories.
I also work as an illustrator where my inspiration comes from my love of storytelling. I adore books and poetry and my work is influenced by a wide variety of different authors and poets, primarily children's authors.
I'm Lauren, otherwise known as Lauren and the Story Box. I'm a children's storyteller, writer and producer of school and culture sector workshops based in London. I've been lucky enough to work on very varied projects from STEM to Shakespeare and everything in-between! This is what I do and I love doing it! I also love adventures, make believe and play, but who doesn't, right?
