Guild was formed in 1974 to help keep the ancient tradition of oral storytelling alive. Members of the Guild meet about once a month to share new stories and plan storytelling events. Individual members are available for programs, workshops, and performances, usually a fee is charged. Membership is open to anyone with a love for stories, a desire to tell them -- and ten bucks for the registration fee. Regular events include the Festival of Ghost Stories on the Friday before halloween and the Wintertelling in February (both are for adults and teens). Storytelling for children, for social groups or for cultural events can be arranged through the Guild.
