|The Glen Eira Storytelling Festival is a new annual event produced by Glen Eira City Council. The event aims to celebrate storytelling through writing, film, visual art, music and performance and will be held from 11-26 August 2011.|
The Glen Eira Storytelling Festival will also incorporate the ‘My Brother Jack Literary Competition’. The competition will open 11 August and close Friday 16 September, with the awards event held Sunday 23 October.
Poetry readings, improvisation performances, workshops, open mic sessions in local cafes, a literary lunch featuring Melbourne author Kerry Greenwood (Phryne Fisher mysteries), feature film screenings, children’s story time sessions and much more will make this an annual event not to be missed!
|Held in three fantastic Glen Eira cafes, the Open Mic sessions will run for approximately two hours and be hosted by local entertainers, Janet McLeod and Russell Fletcher.|
