Ottawa StoryTellers weekly online Story Swap


Get into storytelling with Story Swap! This monthly event is free and open to all. In light of COVID-19 and physical distancing measures, Ottawa StoryTellers is now holding a weekly online Story Swap event on ZOOM.

Until we are able to resume our regular live storytelling events, join us on ZOOM every Tuesday evening from 7:30-8:30PM, hosted by Dean Verger, Ruth Stewart-Verger, and Lynda Joyce.

ZOOM is free to use, and can be downloaded for use onto either a personal computer or smartphone. Attendees are invited to listen or to tell a story 5-10 minutes in length. Those interested in attending can e-mail to receive an invitation.

Participants are asked to please mute their audio upon entry to the ZOOM meeting, as well as turn off their video to best experience this social storytelling experience. The chat function can be used to comment or ask questions. Connect through story with Story Swap!
