Our host for this month is Fionnuala Smyth
Fionnuala is a storyteller and intuitive and founder of 'Transformational Storytelling'. She tells Irish Celtic stories and some from her own life experiences and those she has crafted herself. She loves to encourage others to step forward and tell stories.
For Fionnuala, sharing story is key to understanding ourselves and each other better, strengthening our connections and celebrating our diversity. And it's fun!
Geelong story enthusiasts
Fionnuala is currently in negotiations to set up some fun classes on the Art of Storytelling in Geelong and the Bellerine Peninsula. She is sussing out venues for a regular Storytelling Circle in Geelong.
So if you are interested in any of these, please come and speak with her or contact:
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.
