The Tamiami Tale Tellers (TTT), a longtime storytelling guild in Southwest Florida, is a member of the Florida Storytelling Association. We are a small group of storytellers who enjoy performing and sharing all kinds of stories!
We encourage others to discover the joys of storytelling!
If you would like to participate in a virtual online meeting of story sharing on the third Thursday of each month at 7 PM, please send an email to Marilyn@tttellers.org.
The meeting starts with brief self-introductions and announcements. Then anyone who wants to tell a story calls out "Kric" and the rest respond "Krac," a Haitian storytelling tradition. In this method, we take turns telling stories - all kinds of stories. Folktales, personal stories, historical stories, original stories, even poetry. Some tellers are practicing a story for performance; others may read a newly written story; others may just want to share a recent experience.
Stories should be about 10 minutes. If time permits, a longer story is OK or a teller may share more than one story.
Tellabration 2022 is cancelled
“Bible Bad Girls : Heresy or Herstory?”, an original storytelling program envisioned by Pamela Minton, will be presented at 2:00 PM on Saturday, February 11 at Peace Community Church, Fort Myers Beach, FL. The church is located in the same building as the Masonic Lodge at 17671 Pine Ridge Road, Fort Myers Beach, 33931.
The storytellers will dramatize Biblical women who will defend their tarnished reputations with compelling reasons for their choices. Characters such as Eve, Bathsheba, Salome and others will present new perspectives on gray areas of good and evil.
