Information about Storytelling & other Groups:


Boston Area Monthly Potluck & StorySwap...

This is one of the oldest Storytelling communities in the Country. It grew out of a storytelling event held on the Cambridge Common back in the summer of 1976, as part of the Bicentennial. Attendees had such a good time, they went out for dinner afterwards, and agreed to keep meeting on a monthly basis. Every month, usually on the first Sunday, the group meets at the home of a volunteer host somewhere in the Boston area. After a hearty potluck dinner, the chairs are put in a circle, and the Storytelling begins. Depending on the attendance, the time limit varies, but it's usually at least 10 - 12 minutes. It is a warm, supportive environment for Tellers of all abilities, and feedback is by request only. For more information, or to get on the mailing list, contact Miriam.
