This Friday evening, June 12, and Saturday morning, June 13, the Virginia Storytelling Alliance will hold its Annual Virginia Storytelling Gathering online for the first time. This is a significant event. Not just because we’ll be celebrating the timeless art of storytelling on a 21st century technological platform, but because we will also be celebrating the Alliance’s 20th anniversary.
Friday evening from 6:00-6:30 we’ll conduct our annual members meeting and then from 6:30-7:00 we’ll gather to spend time with old friends and meet some new ones. Then from 7:00-7:50 we’ll here from three celebrated tellers: Anthony Burcher, Beth Ohlsson and Glen Holliday.
Then we’re encouraging people to check out the Rappahannock Story Swap hosted by VASA member Annette Stjernhja.
The following morning internationally celebrated storyteller Sheila Arnold and I will conduct a workshop entitled “Finding Storytelling Business in a Brave New World” from 9:30-11:00 and from 11:30 to 12:30 Ruth Walkup, Les Schaffer and Louise Tucciarrone will offer coaching.

I have served as the President of the VASA Board of Directors for several years and will be rotating off the Board at the end of June. It has truly been an honor.
I hope you’ll join us.
