Storytelling CircleDo you like listening to stories and recitations?
Would you like to learn more about storytelling?
Are you a storyteller at heart, looking for an audience?
Anyone interested in cultivating the traditional art of Newfoundland storytelling is invited to an informal gathering of storytellers and lovers of a good story. Every kind of story or recitation can be told as long as it’s by word of mouth, rather than being read aloud. We welcome storytellers of all kinds, whether you are a professional or a first-timer. Whether you are there to listen, to tell or to gather up your courage to tell a story, we'd love to see you.
For more information, or to be placed on the St. John’s Storytelling Circle email distribution list, contact Erin McArthur at firstname.lastname@example.org. Addicted to facebook? Join the St. John’s Storytelling Circle facebook group today!
Do you love a good story? Do you have one to tell? We welcome first-time and accomplished tellers, and first-time and accomplished listeners! Join us each month for an evening's entertainment.
