January 28 was the first Calaveras Story Swap. 12 people came. Two came all the way from San Diego! The stories started off with Kathy telling a personal story, and Claudia telling about a pick-pocket baby...
Then Claudia brought up a storytelling technique of "Scar Stories." The flood gates opened up!
With the help of 10 others the group roared with laughter, dropped jaws, cringed and shooked their heads in amazement. It was a vey fun night!
The next Calaveras Story Swap will be Sunday, March 25. If you want to learn more about the Mother Lode Storytelling Guild, please look us up on Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/motherlodestorytellingguild/.
