Let me tell you about....an event promotion resource/ American Towns (http://www.americantowns.com/)
If you are planning a storytelling event, training class, concert, or Tellabration! (tr) this is a good avenue to reach out to new audiences. You select a community, add your event, and share the link but also know it will be sent to all those people who have signed up to receive information about events for that location.
Pretty simple way of spreading the word about storytelling in your area!
