I am a professional storyteller and I live in Massachusetts. I am brand new
to this list but already I find the posts fascinating. I look forward to
reading many and learning from your expertise.
That being said, I would like to offer some information the Sharing the Fire
Conference in Massachusetts. It is the premier storytelling conference for
New England which takes place every March at MIT in Boston. We are currently
accepting proposals in a wide variety of disciplines. I am including the
submission information (below my signature) if anyone is interested. For
addition information you can go to <A HREF="http://www.lanes.org/">League for the Advancement of New England
Storytelling</A> www.LANES.org. I do hope many of you will
consider submitting a workshop proposal.
