Storytelling Swap

Story Swap, aka a Tell-Around, is a gathering of storytellers and story listeners. Each story swap is unique, and everyone is welcome. You might hear traditional tales, stories of personal experience, literary stories, original stories, ballads, or episodes from history, all told through the human voice. Participants may come as listeners and/or as tellers: there is an opportunity to recite, relate, recount, retell, or recollect. Each story is five to ten minutes long and is told from memory. 

The doors open at 6:45pm. Those wishing to share a story sign up with the evening’s host and the Telling begins at 7pm.

The facilitators are members of Ottawa StoryTellers.
