Welcome, Gene! There's a large contingent of FL storytellers here that possibly came from the Florida Storytelling Association & the Florida Storytelling Camp. Seeing Mij Byram as your 1st friend, I'm sure you will have some contacts that way. You may also enjoy searching for your home state & the term "tall tale" & "tall tales." If you wonder why I gave both singular & plural, please go to the Group called FAQ & you will see, among other items, about searching here.
I trust you will enjoy the many resources & networking here.
