Fabled Nights in Newport: March 17 and WSD: March 19

Come on over to Newport and join the storytellers as they strut their stuff, wrestle new stories into shape or learn the art from scratch.
We are using these nights to grow. All genres of story welcome: personal, yarns, folk tale and myth. We welcome stories in all languages. So if you are more comfortable telling tales in your mother tongue - come along.

We blink under the lights, film and time each other (if we want to)  and generally encourage each other to have a go. We aim to land our stories in 8 minutes but you know ... that takes practice!

Recently some of us have been using Fabled Nights to practice for World Storytelling Day. (see below)

WHERE: Newport Community HUB 13 Mason Street. Approach from the park, a short walk from the Newport Station
WHEN: 17 March (the 3rd Friday of the month)
TIME: 7.30 pm - 10.00 pm
COST: $5.00 or $3.00 Story Vic and Newport Fiddle and Folk Club members

*We ask that kind hearts and common sense prevail - misogynist, racist and homophobic stories hurt people. Please don't bring them to Fabled nights.


World Storytelling Day is a global celebration of the art of oral storytelling. Its a time when people gather to tell stories and listen to stories in as many languages and in as many places as possible.

Come along and celebrate with us, bring ears to listen or a story to share (8 mins max). There will be stories for all ages.

This event has been organised for us and will be hosted by Storytelling Vic member Susan Hall

WHEN: Sunday 19 March
TIME: 2.00 - 4.00 pm
WHERE: The Dome  (Geelong Library and Heritage Centre)
51 Little Mallop Street, Geelong.
*The Dome is a short walk from the Geelong Station.
