WHAT HAPPENS AT A MEETING?

Many first timers are a little intimidated about coming to a storytelling guild or circle.  They say, "Wow!  I don't know any stories.  People will laugh at me."

Actually, nothing could be further from the truth. Most guilds or circles, especially ours, are always eager to have "newbies" visit.  It gives us old timers a chance to help those newbies learn how to tell their own stories (there as as many different styles of storytelling as there are storytellers!)  More importantly, it gives us a chance to have a fresh audience!  In a typical meeting, we may have some members tell structured stories they hope to perform before a paying audience,but a large part of our membership is made up of folks who are not professionals telling stories for money.  We share stories from our childhood or life events, stories that we tell to relatives and younger generations, hence the name and primary purpose of our circle: the Legacy Storytelling Circle.  We want to pass down not only our own legacies, but the legacy of storytelling, itself, an activity dating back thousands of years to our ancestors who passed down stories from generation to generation long before the invention of the written word.


NOTE:
