Video Your Storytelling
Time: 9:00am-1:00pm
Location: Choctaw Library (MLS)


Storytellers are invited to come to a story swap with a twist. Come and share your funny stories, sad stories, healing stories, short stories, animal stories and people stories, and get your performance videotaped. Chester Weems, retired educator and amateur storyteller from Yukon who enjoys photography, will videotape performers as they share stories with the audience. This video will be transferred to a high quality DVD (Not HD) for each performer and will be mailed to the performer approximately one week after the program.

This tool will help the performer hone his/her skills or use the end product in marketing the performer.

Performers are encouraged to be part of the audience for other storytellers during this event. Copyright issues will be the sole responsibility of the performer.

Performers will be asked to limit their performance to 12-15 minutes to give fellow storytellers the opportunity to participate. Performers should prepare a brief (15-20 second) bio-introduction to lead into the taping. Priority will be given to storytellers who wish to be videotaped.

There will be a $5.00 mailing and materials resource fee.

Pre-Registration is REQUIRED. Call the Choctaw Library at 390-8418.

Beverages, fruit and pastries will be served. The WayWord Tellers are an Oklahoma City area storytelling group dedicated to the promotion and preservation of the art and tradition of storytelling.

Co-Sponsor: Metropolitian Library System, Choctaw Library, WayWord Tellers and Territory Tellers
