On Facebook we share any and all Victorian storytelling news, regardless of the membership status of the storytellers. This is a public site and is embedded in the HOME page of our website so you do not have to be a member of Facebook to check it out. There is always a lot to explore.
However this blog (which is free) is reserved for the news of our members, partners and associates. And some our good friends are hosting conferences and events and you might wish to toss your hat into the ring. So for those of you who have missed the posts on Facebook, here is the latest!
