Event Description

Jay O'Callahan will lead a 6-day workshop, Stories Are Like Fireflies, in which he will help you call forth some of those fireflies in a simple and playful way. When a memory just appears the storytelling is often fresh and interesting; the details are sharp as is the sense of place, characters and the event itself. Jay feels these fireflies, these forgotten memories, are at the heart of storytelling. Songwriter/storyteller Mandi Kujawa from Banff, Canada will assist Jay.
