Afternoon: More 10-minute stories
1 ½ hour participatory workshop sponsored by Storytellers of Canada/Conteurs du Canada led by Betty Bennett and Angelica Ottewill: “How to enhance and enliven a story through music, audience participation, and tandem telling”
Evening: Pizza supper, with crudités and dessert
Party with casual singing/sing-along and short, funny stories led by Tom Lips

Getting a spot as a teller:

The great thing about this event is the chance to hear as many voices as possible, so we are asking that stories be no longer than 10 minutes. To be considered for the line-up, please send a short proposal. As there are sure to be more offers to tell than spots on the program, selection will be by lottery.
