Event Description

Top Storytellers Come to Plymouth

Plymouth, MA: March 24-26, some of the finest storytellers in the nation will come together in Plymouth, MA for the 36th annual Sharing the Fire (STF), Northeast Storytelling Conference.  Since its modest start at Lesley College over 3 decades ago, STF has become the place for New England and New York storytellers to sharpen their skills and exchange ideas.  Professional tellers and novice tellers alike will find plenty to choose from.  The lineup includes over two dozen workshops, performances, slams, swaps and fringes.  This year there will even be a strand called Stories Galore for people who love to listen to stories but don’t necessarily want to become a storyteller.
