Hudson Valley Story Tellers September 24 at 6:30pm
Have your creative juices slowed to creative sludge? Get things going or just keep it flowing with a supportive group of storytellers. But we’re not just storytellers. We’re also writers, poets, illustrators, performers, and all manner of creative types. We’ll meet to discuss original work, favorite pieces, and do some creative writing exercises. We’ll also look into self publishing and performing stories for the TV-deadened public. All experience and ability levels are welcome. Through constructive criticism and mutual support we can all get better, no matter where we’re starting.
