An Evening of Storytelling! — 4 Comments

  1. I am a storyteller and poet visiting Vancouver and Vancouver Island in April. I would be grateful if you could let me know of any events where I might tell or read between April 10 and April 20. Thanks John Row

    • I should have added that I am visiting from the UK and it is my first visit to Canada and I have told across Europe, the middle and far east, north Africa and Texas

    • Hi John! I don’t receive notifications when someone posts on this page, so apologies for the delayed response.

      If you’re interested in telling a very short story (4-6 minutes) as part of our monthly storytelling series in Vancouver on April 11, send me a message during the period of March 14-March 11 saying you’re interested in signing up. (Our event is quite popular with storytellers and we tend to get far more folks signing up than we have slots onstage, so we only take signups for a few specific days then do a draw a month in advance.) I can be reached at vancouverstoryslam at yahoo dot com.

      Also, if you send me an email soon as you see this, and remind me of what dates you’ll be in our area, I can also look around for other events during that time when you can share your work. There’s a rich network of literary events, both poetry and storytelling, in our area – I’m sure we can find you some stages to shine on!
