Let's Talk

Do you have a great story and need suggestions on where you could perform it? Or perhaps you have an idea for a story and want to work on it with someone? Did you hear about Suitcase Stories or WGBH's Stories from the Stage and think you might like participate? Let's talk. 

The only thing I love more than sharing and listening to stories is contributing to the expansion of the storytelling community.  It's as exciting to encourage a first time teller to share as it is to work with a community partner to bring storytelling to a new neighborhood as a means to advance community.

Whatever your interest, I am hear to listen and help where I can.
