Again this year, Story Arts of MN will sponsor the Storytelling Stage at the Festival of Nations on May 3-6, 2018 in St. Paul.
Carol McCormick is booking tellers for 30 minute slots sharing stories from their Ethnic Heritage. This year Carol is hoping to pair novice tellers with only 10 or 15 minutes of material with experienced tellers. If you are interested in telling at the FON, please email Carol at firstname.lastname@example.org with your name, email, mailing address, phone #, available dates and times, and what nation(s) from your family tree that you could represent. Also include if you have stories for family and/or adult audiences and if you can fill 30 minutes or less. Last year in addition to individual teller slots we had a Friday Night Adult Concert, a Saturday Morning Family Concert and a Saturday Night Ghost Story Concert. Tellers will receive some free passes to the FON and be paid according to the funds available. (If you're aware of a foundation or nonprofit that might like to support the Storytelling Stage, please let Carol know.)
