Tellabration!: Thursday, November 9th

Join the Storytelling Workshop Series, culminating in Tellabration

Everyone is a storyteller. You create and interpret stories every day - when you tell a friend about your day, update the boss on your current project, or tell your grandson what his mother was like as a child. In September, the Institute Library will host our annual Storytelling Workshops to help participants become more intentional and thoughtful about how they tell stories.

Please commit to as many of the four dates as you can, since each session builds on the preceding ones. You must choose each workshop date and register for it separately. Note: This is NOT the same as the Institute Library’s monthly Storysharing group, although anyone is welcome to participate in either or both.

Each participant will choose a brief story to tell, and we will help each other hone our stories. Your story may be based on your own experience, it may be a traditional folktale or legend, or you may find another genre. The workshops will culminate on November 9th in a “Tellabration,” a public storytelling show.

What participants are saying about the Storytelling Workshop experience:

"I really like to hear these stories on so many levels. First, they’re entertaining. But, maybe more importantly, they share some very real human qualities that defy stereotypes and find real truth. This becomes a true community.” (Storytelling Member, 2014)

“What a memorable evening, sharing our stories. I felt honored to both meet and collaborate with everyone. I truly enjoyed the stories made even richer from our revisions. See you at the next gathering." (Storytelling Member, 2015)
