Starburst Storytelling Festival

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!
