Westcotes Library Storytelling and Writing for Storytelling Club

Westcotes Library, Leicester

There are many fantastic oral storytelling traditions from all around the world and storytelling clubs are not hard to find, but where do you go to develop new writing for oral storytelling in an informal club atmosphere? When I looked, I couldn’t find anywhere which quite matched that description and so, for ER 2019, we are starting a new club with exactly that aim. The direction of the club will eventually be shaped by its members but to get us going, and as it is Halloween week after all, I’ll tell some ghost stories I’ve recently written. There will also be an opportunity for others to tell a short (or tall) tale and a chaired discussion amongst attendees about the art of storytelling. So come along and join in or simply relax and listen and help us launch this brand new club in style.
