From sitting around the campfire telling scary tales to entertaining your co-workers at the water cooler, storytelling isn’t just for bards or performers; it’s something we all do, every day. The Ann Arbor Storytellers Guild seeks to honor and expand on one of humanity’s most enduring traditions. Stories can range from an expansion of traditional folklore and legendary tales to personal travails. There’s no chance of these stories getting stale– visual elements are encouraged, as long as they add to the richness of the story being told. Meetings last at least an hour, devoted to storytelling and discussion; you are highly encouraged to cultivate your own story to share with the group, although it is not required.

2pm-4pm, Sunday, October 24
Free and open to the public
