Storytellers -What are we?
We are enthusiasts who enjoy telling or listening to stories.
We love folk tales, urban myths, tall stories, anecdotes, and monologues.
We focus on oral telling rather than reading or singing, though of course either may contribute to a tale.
We welcome anyone who would like to join us, either as a listener or a storyteller.
