This blog has been rather quiet of late - are you busy out there? I hope so.
We keep this blog going as a service to our members, so ...
If you've paid your dues
please send us your news!
This is a monthly reminder that Fabled Nights in Newport is on again this Friday.
In the depths of winter our numbers drop but we still gather, practice stories, welcome visitors, drink tea, eat cake and hatch plans.
Last month we talked a lot about learning to record and edit a series. Some of our older attendees, in particular have tales to go and are enthusiastic.
Our good friends and supporters, the Newport Fiddle and Folk Club are learning to use the recording studio at the Newport HUB and if we are clever, we could join forces with music and story.
So please join us this Friday.
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.
We reserve 2 - 15 minute places for people who want to try out longer stories.
Let kind hearts and commonsense prevail: racist and homophobic stories hurt people so please don't bring them to 'Fabled Nights'.
COST: $5.00 or $3.00 (Storytelling Vic and Newport Fiddle and Folk Club members). No Booking required.
