July 24-26, 2009: KEEP AUSTIN WEIRD!Tejas Storytelling Association is doing it's part to live up to Austin's popular bumper sticker mandate to KEEP AUSTIN WEIRD by swarming the lone star state's capital with...who else? US! We're counting on contributions of mild to extreme weirdness from storytellers from across the nation--including you! We predict that SoCo (South Congress Avenue), Weird Austin headquarters, will never be the same!The SoCo area includes delicious eateries for vegetarians and…See More

Silverchin commented on Ann Scroggie's group International Storytelling
"Just found the group. Have told on 3 continents and would love to do it again (or even more). If anyone happens to stop in to the Republic of Tejas - I mean, the State of Texas - let me know and we might be able to meet."

International Storytelling

Stories are everywhere and many storytellers are traveling to find the stoiies or maybe the stories find the teller.

"Fairy Tale - a story in which magical helpers assist the hero/heroine to complete a task, quest, or other directive. Fairy Tales are not just for children. Consider the great fairy tale writers of the late 17th century Parisian salons - plus the…"

Storytelling in Higher Education: Performance-Lecture

As an academic storyteller (personal term for a teller in higher ed) I have found that the students who hear me as a guest performance-lecturer are seemingly "starved" for stories, i.e, I still have students from several semesters past who approach me on campus to ask when I'm telling again, what classes(s) do I teach [which I can't teach due to my employment classification], where does the local guild meet, etc. etc.



This I have found troubling during my employment here at… Continue

I'm always willing to tell! And Telebration last year was a personal sucess for me cause I told Finn's Head, which is now on it's way to being a Children's book. I have a mad idea about doing the entire Irishi mythic cycle as an ongoing nighttime soup opera called "Bedtime Stories for Adults". I'm not an epic teller though, my mind goes to down-hame back kitchen gossip about Cucchulainn, Maeve, Angus and all the others. It would be great to do the the same tale in the two contrasting styles.

Catch ya later silverchin

Hey silverchin, How are you doing - haven't seen you in a while. Only keeping up with some of your antics through Lucinda. I liked what you said about storytelling for adults and how the guild only wants cutsy wutsy. I have a very dark story about the Cathebova - crow goddess of battle, but have qualms about trying it out for the guild. I think I'll do it anyway. still figuring out this network though

Wow, I have never heard any of those TOLD and will have to find an occasion to hear one of them trip off your tongue. I am going to be in Texas to work with the Tejas Board of Directors in June but I don't think there is much extra time on that weekend to meet you but....yes, somewhere along the line.

Silverchin, Welcome!

I've never yet encountered a teller who held forth before an oversized drainage pipe . . . now THAT is impressive! I'd love to learn the story of its coming about, and hear how it all came out (so to speak).

I used to practice sermons before a herd of cattle in Bell County, but an oversized drainage pipe . . . never crossed my mind.

We're just an hour up the road from you, so I hope our paths cross somewhere along the storytelling trail ere too long.

This is a remarkable site, and I trust you will soon learn to love it, as so many of us do. Meantime, continued success in your telling. I look forward to seeing/hearing/meeting you.

Best,

Tom T
