Would you like to be part of the Mother Lode Storytelling Guild? Please contact us! We meet about once a month to work on upcoming events. Membership is free, as the guild is supported by donations at events and by community sponsorship.
People from all walks of life and backgrounds are invited to come together to connect through the sharing of personal stories in a safe, supportive environment free from pressure, judgment, or a cover charge (although donations for to fund scholarships and local telling events gratefully accepted). Anything goes, from your life story to what you saw on the bus last week. Family stories, funny stories, heartbreaking stories, folk tales, traditional stories, or fiction. Anything you want to share, if they speak to you. Everyone has a story to tell, and we want to hear yours!
