November 6th Women Telling: A Harvest of Stories

Thursday, November 18 at 7PM CST
Register here beginning November 1.
Stories (for ages 11+) might be folktales or perhaps a personal story of some moment when the teller was awed by a waterfall, had no words to explain the beauty of aurora borealis, encountered a wild animal… or reluctantly went on a first time ever camping trip with friends and decided they wanted to do this again.
These stories will inspire listeners to imagine beautiful birds, wonderful animals, interesting plants, and awe-inspiring scenery. You will wish you were there with the storyteller. These are stories that will help folks experience the outdoors through storytelling. Stories that will help you get ready to have a nature connection of your own the next time you are outside, whether it is in the city, in the woods, in your backyard, in the wilderness or in your house with your plants.
An annual gathering of Wisconsin tellers actively engaged in the art and practice of storytelling, the Wisconsin Storytellers’ Get-Together is an informal gathering for sharing stories, ideas & resources. It’s a chance for networking, mutual support and being re-energized for storytelling in whatever form we practice it. Join in and swap some tales! Join us for a day of connecting, telling and listening to stories.
