Fall is ripe with stories

There’s a crispness in the air.  More order to the shorter days as school gets underway.  The leaves turn and crunch underfoot.  Apple and pumpkin dominate the flavor scene, like it or not.  And nothing beats a story tied with an autumnal bow.

Ideally while cradling a steaming mug of spiced cider in chilly hands.

But potentially in a booth!  Or nestled amidst forested hills!

The Key Bank Rochester Fringe Festival runs Sept 14-23 and the Storychick Storybooth will be at its heart – in the Spiegelgarden at One Fringe Place, for the duration!  Come, listen to a Fringe story, and leave one of your own!  Come back to catch new stories – I’ll be swapping new for old regularly throughout the Fringe.

I’m really excited about this concept, about Fringe, and about the potential for story discovery throughout the city!  Be sure to stop and check it out!

Never Fringed before?  You don’t know what you’re missing – this is an incredible assemblage of vast and varied talent and it’s very #ROC.

You also have the opportunity to be among the first stories heard opening weekend.  Call 585-210-0805 and leave a story (The recording will run for 3 minutes.  If you need more time, call back) about a Fringe experience! I know we live in a town of last-minute Lou-Lous, but I do need to get set up ahead of time, so please call now!

Post-Fringe blues? Craft and hone a personal story along with me at the amazing Cumming Nature Center Sept 30 at 12 and 230!  I’ll give you story tips through the day as we iteratively work in groups and on our own to craft a tale for day’s end.  Storytelling is as old as human history – it’s part of our nature – and everyone has a story worth sharing.  Let me help you find yours at the Heritage Maker Storytelling workshop!
