Kitchen-Table Storytelling

Come and join us for an afternoon of kitchen-table story telling. WISHES is the theme for this year. Everyone who WISHES will get a chance to tell. Feel free to think of the theme in the broadest sense possible – I wish, s/he wishes, fantasy wishes, holiday wishes, three wishes, if wishes were horses…! And we would love to see you there if you just WISH to listen.

Should you WISH to tell, you will have five to seven (5-7) minutes for your story. Plan your timing carefully so everyone who WISHES has a chance to tell.

Tea and Social

And what is a kitchen party without refreshments and a chance to socialize? Juice, coffee and tea will be available. Whoever wants to contribute a favourite treat, is welcome to do so.

Here’s WISHING you will attend this Celebration of Storytelling (we will be joining people all around the world who are celebrating on and around March 20th).
