Svend-Erik is a Danish storyteller who has worked internationally as a storyteller, story coach, and theatre director for over 30 years.

He started creating his unique coaching method while teaching in a folkehøjskole in the 1990’s. The method has been described as Fluid Storyguiding by one of his students.

During the pandemic, he transferred his in-depth storytelling masterclasses to the online environment, providing the original impetus for Giant’s Heart.

The way Engh paints his stories is magical, building a landscape of a simpler time.

Let me listen to your idea, your seedling of a story or a fully composed tale which you may have told many times. You will find that my feedback always adds new dimensions to the telling.

Write me an email on svend.erik.engh@gmail.com and lets see if we can find a time for a free coaching session. First one is free introductory half hour session. If you like what you get, we can arrange for more coaching on a pay what you can basis.

I thought it was amazing the way you homed in so exactly on what each of us needed to do to improve our stories while at the same time supporting our faith in our storytelling

Svend-Erik is a wonderful teacher! He is passionate about the world of story and manages to detect the strength and weaknesses within the tale. His workshops are joyful with valuable as well as kind feedback... I highly recommend working with Svend-Erik and discover new and surprising ways in your telling.

is our 2-year-old's favourite, he asks to read it at least once or twice a day and joins in on 'Boos and hisss' and every 'ouch', and has us singing Nelly the elephant every time too.
