the living art of storytelling in Massachusetts

Hey there - I have designed a business card

(Michael A's had idea to hand out cards after we perform any where)
and a small square flyer (attached)massmouth poster.pdf
I am looking for feed back - on the words especially -
as a designer I am ruthless - plunder text to make things look interesting-
as a typist I am a disaster. Typos, wrds missig, dyslecic seplling etc...
When peeps are happy with these I can post
both as pdfs at website for down load and any one can print them
We now have the blessing of the owner of
Toscis and the night manager. I believe that Gus, the owner, will talk us up -
he talks to everybody and knows everybody in Cambridge.

I only have 3 weeks before I start teaching school - eek - 300 kids a week in performing arts
So - We should set the date for our first meeting, I think.
MON ? or THUR ? -
If MON does not conflict with NSN ( AUG 7th )
- would more folks be likely to come?
I am away on weekends with only occasional access to internet
( i have to drive to town library and sit on steps or in car if raining)
If we have a quorum of tellers for first meeting- I'd like to do some publicity - try to get some buzz
in the outside world ( meaning outside our comfy, self imposed, story schtetl)
¡ Amigos!
El pueblo, unido, jamás será vencido -*
ciao for now,

Hi Norah, et al! I made it here :). The poster is grand. Great job! I'm headed to NSN Gatlinburg Aug. 7, but could come on Monday, 8/4, if that's the date (or 8/11 or 8/12?). If so, I'll talk to you about parking and/or the T. It would be nice to be able to attend the meeting. Miss ya! Hasta luego, xo, Leeny

Wow Norah, the card and the poster look fabuloso!! For the card, I wonder if the "/" is strictly necessary? I noticed you didn't use it on the poster, which I kinda liked. Not sure if I feel really strongly about this, or just feel the need to "put my oar in" so that you know that your fellow storytellers are paying close attention to your valiant and fruitful efforts.
