2012 has started with a busy schedule of storytelling ahead. I hope to see you somewhere along the way as I present workshops at the Sharing the Fire Conference in Albany, New York and at the OOPS Storytelling Conference in Mount Vernon, Ohio. Or perhaps our paths will cross at the August Heritage Series Old-Time Week, where I will be teaching a weeklong workshop on Appalachian storytelling, or at the West Virginia Vandalia Festival, the West Virginia State Folk Festival or the WV Book Festival or the West Virginia Writers Conference. Maybe you will be in the audience at a school performance or at a library summer program.
The year is full of possibilities for meeting new friends and hearing new stories. Here is a story for today:
