Dearest Story Tellers and Story Listeners, we’re trying again! Please join us for our REAL first digital story circle on

Wednesday, April 8
7 pm NL (5:30 EDT / 2:30 PDT)
On Zoom*

Our first attempt at the digital circle was unfortunately cut short, but we’re back for take two!

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!



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 the morning of April 8th.

Please arrive between 6:45 and 7 pm! We’ll go over Zoom use/etiquette and make sure we’re all ready for our tellers at 7 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 6:45 PM, and the host will start admitting guests at that time. If you have questions about how to access Zoom let us know!
