So far we have held three workshops for college students in the Pioneer Valley. The workshops are in anticipation of the LANES Storytelling Conference: Sharing the Fire on March 28th at UMass, Amherst. Storyteller Bob Reiser and I will now hold Story Slams. Here’s a photo of the winners at the Five College Story Slam held at Mount Holyoke College in January. Left to right: Alexis Teyie- Awarded Favorite Story!
