Storytelling Thursday, here!
StoryFUSION!! STORY - fusion. A fusion of all the ways story can be told. Well, maybe not all the ways. But a whole SLEW of ways. The whole thing happens at Northampton Community College, one of my alma maters. And it happens from March 29th through April 1st, 2012. That's THIS month. Lehigh Valley Storytelling Guild is a MAJOR contributor to this event - as in we make it happen.
So I promised you I'd give you the low-down on this event. But there is really too much to tell. Here's a link to the schedule.
Elizabeth Ellis is the featured teller. She is intelligent and mesmerizing as a performer. She sweeps people up into her stories. She is a fantastic educator. I <3 Elizabeth Ellis - could you tell?
So many other people are involved. The workshops alone are amazing - and that's NOT just because I am co-leading one of them. Here is a nice description of all the workshops.
The student performances promise to be wonderful. I saw a minute or two of the multi-media project. I am in love!
