You'll find an international network of over 1800 members here & groups helping with the business & performing ends of storytelling. Using the search box in the upper right of each page you can search for specific topics. Because the best way to become a storyteller is to have as many opportunities to tell as possible, I searched & see 3 other members here from Sacramento. If you go to the National Storytelling Network's website, California's storytelling organizations are listed & so you may be able to find a group near you.
Of course networking here lets you see member blogs & videos, but hope you don't stop with the virtual world of storytelling.
