Hi Doria,
Check out the photo that Olga took of us at Blue's last night. She told me again that she really liked your story "The Masque of Bess of Bedlam". That's saying something, considering how much talent was in the room last night.

HI Doria, Yeah that'd be great if you could. I do like to keep it on the same date(Mondays) because People are getting in tune with Mondays for MassMouth.
If you change it they get confused(that is in response to* Mei Lin)just me opinion though I am not the keeper of the times. . However, I will say this as it turns spring-like we should move out of Toscas and do some of the things and places we had planned. Under bridges , on top of towers, ONTHE T. Those things can be done on different days. We should also plan some workshops , people may have a skill they want to offer , see if we can get a place and who knows. We take off that way and feed each other knowledge.
Anyway thank you for offering, When would you like to hold this? There is March 2nd ,9th, or 16th. The other dates may be too close to STF. What do you think? Andrea

Thanks for the "What Have the Crickets Ever Done For Us?" video.


Grand Prize for South Shore Grand Slam Story Slam generously donated by Nicolette Heavey and Stories In The Streets (A Maine Get Away)

Stories in the Streets in an outreach literacy program that focuses on families in at-risk areas and fosters community engagement in storytelling by: 1) Creating opportunities for public storytelling wherever families gather — a farmer’s market, laundromat, or food line; and, 2) Offering storytelling workshops that raise family engagement in literacy, cultural awareness and community understanding.  The program is currently active in Lawrence, Brockton and Randolph.

This season thank you to The Tinkers son , The Hingham Conservatory of Music.
