Hi Story fans!
I’ve been away for a minute, but never gone entirely!
It has been a very long progressive summer with performances at local coffee houses, the MOTH, and at the National Storytelling Conference: All our Voices in Kansas City, MO.
Well, the telling continues next month as I will have the opportunity to participate in the Starburst Storytelling festival as the Teller-In-Residence for Anderson University in Anderson, SC.
This is a weeklong festival from Oct. 15th – Oct 19th.
School children will be bussed in from the area and there is one evening program for adults on Monday Oct 16th.
I am particularly looking forward to that presentation as it is an opportunity for me to present new material in my program: Breaking Bread with a Sharp Slice of Chetter
The description is so apropos for the direction my storytelling is taking . . . “Today, Chetter finds story fodder in his life – the times where he goofed up, made a huge mistake, or simply acted out of character. Lessons learned, overcoming adversity, and finding courage are his stock in trade”.
I appreciate the opportunity to share this these types of stories now at this point in life as the time has come to share the heartache, disappointments, & travesties, I experienced and see both what lessons and humor can be found in them.
So, if you are in the Palmetto State on I-85 and want to take a short excursion to hear stories next month, I will have a front row seat waiting for you!
See you there!
