Now that the intense holiday time is over, we settle into the brief days and long cold nights of January. Time to think of a warming story, one you want to share for Wintertelling. We'll be meeting to try out our tales on Sunday, January 26, at 3:00 at the main building of the Monroe County Public Library.
Even if you haven't a story to tell, you can look forward to the evening of February 7th, when we will gather for the annual Wintertelling.
The Bloomington Storytellers' Guild was formed in 1974 to help keep the ancient tradition of oral storytelling alive. In addition to being a means for sharing classic folk and fairytales of our times (and times past), storytelling encourages use of the imagination, listening skills, and an interest in reading.
Members of the Guild meet about once a month to share new stories and plan storytelling events. Membership is open to anyone with a love for stories, a desire to tell them -- and ten bucks for the registration fee.
