Founded in 1994, the Frogtown Storytelling Guild is based in Toledo, Ohio. The purpose of the guild is the preservation and perpetuation of storytelling, and the promotion of the art and  craft of storytelling. Our members include tellers at various skill levels, as well as people who simply enjoy listening, and/or support the gentle art of storytelling.

Are you a storyteller? Do you want to become a storyteller? Do you want to improve your storytelling skills? Do you just like to listen to storytellers?

Then come to our monthly meetings to share a story or simply to listen. Open to budding storytellers, professional storytellers, natural-born storytellers, and shy storytellers (i.e., people who'd rather listen to storytellers than tell a story).

Reynolds Corner Library

Time: 9:00 am–11:00 am

In 1988, the first Tellabration! concerts were performed at six locations in the state of Connecticut. J. G. Pinkerton, the originator of Tellabration!, envisioned the event as a way of fostering and maintaining the art of storytelling. It was a great success and in the following year Tellabration! concerts soon spread to other states. In 1990, Tellabration! became a national event with the help of the National Storytelling Network. Its popularity continues to spread and now thousands of storytelling groups worldwide produce Tellabration! concerts in November. By sponsoring Tellabration! concerts, the goal of the Frogtown Storytelling Guild is to provide enjoyable performances that leave the audience feeling lighthearted and, more importantly, with a deeper appreciation for the power of story.
