Fabled Nights in Newport: November 17

Come along to the final Fabled Nights for 2017. Come and celebrate with us a rich year of community and story sharing, cake eating and tea drinking. We'll be back again in March 2018.

Special Guest: Rex Smeal
If the universe works in our favour, this month we will have a special guest. Rex Smeal is a freelance animator and games artist. Our plan is to drop the screen in the HUB, hook up a computer and tablet and Rex will demonstrate how a story might be spontaneously illustrated. Rex moved to Melbourne from Tasmania just in time for PAX Australia 2017 and was the artist anchoring a panel whose task it was to design a board game in 60 minutes!
Fabled Nights in Newport is an open-hearted space for people who want to learn to craft true tales, traditional stories, tall tales and yarns; heart to heart and without notes. We welcome beginners and experienced folks. So come and strut your stuff, share what you know, try out a new story or tell a tale for the first time.

There's room for around 10 storytellers and we ask that stories be no longer than 10 minutes, give or take. We ask that stories be said not read.

Let kind hearts and commonsense prevail: racist and homophobic stories hurt people so please don't bring them to Fabled Nights
