Wisconsin Storytellers’ Get-Together


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.


On Saturday, April 27, 2024  we will gather together at the Columbus WI Community Center to swap stories, share ideas, connect as peers and friends. Some parts may be available on zoom. You must register in order to attend either in person or on Zoom.

A Story Swap is a gathering of tellers to share stories and hear the unique voices of other Wisconsin tellers. WISTGET organizers choose themes ahead of time to organize small groups that breakout from the main room. There will be a swap facilitator who will start the session and will keep things moving and on time. Each teller comes prepared with either a finished short story or something on which they are working, which is 8 to 10 minutes in length. Tellers are welcome to request feedback after the session during chat times. Depending on how many people choose to put their name in the hat, everyone may not get the chance to share.

Tellers are encouraged to post a listing in the site Directory. Event organizers can send in information with links to their websites.  Anyone who discovers storytelling in a new corner of the state can pass on the information via Contact. Let the tales begin!
