January Virtual Story Circle

Free! on Zoom
Welcome to 2021 and a whole new year of stories! On January 13th we’ll gather virtually for the first Story Circle of the year. In continuing with an abundance of caution, we are keeping our Circles virtual for at least the next couple of months. So cuddle up in your favourite cozy spot and enjoy an enthralling evening of tales from our living rooms to yours!
Our monthly Story Circle is an open mic event, formerly taking place live at Erin’s Pub and now virtually through Zoom! Storytellers from Newfoundland, Labrador, and other parts of Canada and the world share their stories. True, mythological, fictional, rhyming – all kinds of stories are welcomed! On any given night we enjoy tales that tickle our funny bones, invite us to be contemplative, and remind us of our resilience.
If you would like to share a story at the upcoming circle, please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org along with a sentence or two about yourself and your stories, or the story you are planning to tell.
**We are especially keen to hear more from our Newfoundland and Labrador tellers!**
To access the meeting, please join our mailing list (if you haven’t already): https://www.storytellingstjohns.ca/contact/
We will e-mail you the link to the meeting one hour before the Circle begins.
Please arrive between 7:25 and 7:30 pm! We’ll go over Zoom use/etiquette and make sure we’re all ready for our tellers at 7:30 pm.
If you have not used Zoom before, you will be prompted to create an account and download some software when you follow the link to join the meeting. It will be possible to enter the waiting room starting at 7:45 PM, and the host will start admitting guests at that time. If you have questions about how to access Zoom let us know!
