Do you like listening to stories and recitations?
Would you like to learn more about storytelling?
Are you a storyteller at heart, looking for an audience?
Do you love a good story? Do you have one to tell? We welcome first-time and accomplished tellers, and first-time and accomplished listeners! Join us each month for an evening’s entertainment. Anyone interested in cultivating the traditional art of storytelling is invited to an informal gathering of storytellers and listeners. Every kind of story or recitation can be told as long as it’s by word of mouth, rather than being read aloud. We welcome storytellers of all kinds, from professionals to first-timers. Whether you are there to listen, to tell or to gather up your courage to tell a story, we’d love to see you.
