29th Anniversary Celebration...

Tuesday, February 2, 2021, will be our 29th Anniversary, so we'll celebrate in style, even if it's Online. We'll have stories about Brother Blue & Ruth Hill, and of years gone by; plus favorite Tales and a wonderful Feature.


 
 

Boston Area Monthly Potluck & StorySwap...

This is one of the oldest Storytelling communities in the Country. It grew out of a storytelling event held on the Cambridge Common back in the summer of 1976, as part of the Bicentennial. Attendees had such a good time, they went out for dinner afterwards, and agreed to keep meeting on a monthly basis. Every month, usually on the first Sunday (unless there's a holiday), the group would meet at the home of a volunteer host, somewhere in the Boston area. After a hearty potluck dinner, the chairs were put in a circle, and the Storytelling began. Depending on attendance, the time limit varied, but it was usually at least 10 - 12 minutes, with feedback by request only.

We're still meeting, just Online now for the time being. And, it's still a warm, supportive environment for Tellers of all abilities. For more information, or to get on the mailing list, contact Miriam.

Sharing The Fire...

Sponsored by NorthEast Storytelling (formerly L.A.N.E.S.), Sharing The Fire is the annual NorthEast Storytelling Conference. This exciting and dynamic event draws Storytellers from around the country, and the World, as well. STF is more than just a conference. "Yes, there are workshops, performances, round table discussions, vendor exhibits, nationally known Keynote Speakers, and late-night Story Swaps. But there is also an inviting and supportive atmosphere where seasoned veterans and beginning storytellers can share their stories alike. Unfortunately, again this year (2021), the in-person Conference has been cancelled. In its place will be SPARKS, a "Storytelling Staycation" extraordinaire, from May 13th to the 16th, with Headliner Sherry Norfolk, plus Bil Lepp, Cindy Freeman, and Simon Brooks.
