Storytelling

The Story Telling Group meets once a month on the first Wednesday from 10 am to 12 noon. Meetings are held in a member’s house.
The activity is divided into an hour of brain exercises, led by a group member. The main point is to get those present to speak spontaneously on a given subject. Thus a photograph may start one person to speak for about 2 minutes on however the picture is portrayed to that person. The next person can either continue the theme or introduce a new story and this continues until all have been in the hot seat.
Sounds like hard work coupled with nerves jangling – not a bit. The first hour flashes by in a cacophony of noisy laughter. The lungs are well and truly exercised.
For the second hour each member tells a story roughly in keeping with the theme for the meeting. The themes are set annually so all have time to learn a story well in advance of any meetings. The stories are told from memory and not read.
We have one stipulation – members do not write and tell their own stories or personal reminiscences. We have found that telling the old stories, myths, legends, fairy tales, and so on produces a far better and more enjoyable session. The material available is legion, in books and on the internet.
