Karen Czarnik, your friendly and ever approachable Red Thread Stories’ Producer and Emcee, always considers her glass half plastic. She’s uniquely optimistic and was awarded the National Storytelling Network 2012 Story Slam’s First Place Winner. Although she is not a social media expert, she does consider herself quite social and is delighted to offer community events that have people listening to stories in a whole new way.
In spite of what Karen’s multitasking life looks like as an artist, storyteller, musician, entrepreneur, mother, wife, and creative project guru, she is actually quite organized. Karen has been telling stories since…well, for as long as she could chat it up and is thrilled when others discover their inner storyteller as well. It is her delight to take her listeners on a journey with laughter, whimsy, and wonder all while witnessing the power of story.
