As Oklahoma sets sail into a new millennium, a new group is forming to launch storytelling in the state into new and wider waters. OK TELLERS will be a loose association of artists who share tales through a variety of mediums and venues. Classic children's stories, urban tales, paranormal tales, historic tour guides, student storytellers, writer-tellers, puppeteers, and so much more!!
Plans are underway to establish a series of training events to launch people into storytelling! These will be available for scheduling in libraries, youth programs, and other venues for a reasonable program or per participant cost.
If interested, contact firstname.lastname@example.org or log on to the Oklahoma Presenters and Performers ning committee http://www.oklapp.ning.com/ and join the OK Tellers group! A website has been set up to help promote the association as well : http://sites.google.com/site/oktellers/
Also, another group is being explored called STORIED TELLERS. If interested in either of these groups please contact the above email.
