Dearest Story Tellers and Story Listeners, please join us for our first ever foray into digital storytelling!
Digital Story Circle with Gary Green
Wednesday, April 1
7 – 9 pm
*Via Zoom Link (notes below):
Our regular monthly story circles are the perfect opportunity for aspiring and seasoned storytellers to share their tales with an enthusiastic and attentive audience. As we are unable to come together in person we shall gather virtually, sharing digital space from our respective kitchens and living rooms!
Our Host this month is Gary Green, a multi-talented storyteller, musician, and history buff. You might hear him tell a Jack tale, a fairy tale, or something from the fabled Pigeon Inlet; or you may hear a true tale from adventurous travel or turbulent wartimes. There is one thing for certain: there is no storyteller quite like the inimitable Gary Green!
Our Story Circle is an Open Mic event. As we sort through the specifics of bringing it online, we ask that any teller interested in sharing a story please e-mail us in advance and we will add your name to the list: email@example.com
