Ottawa StoryTellers Story Swap: Open Stage Night
Thursday, August 5, 7:00 – 9:30 p.m.
at Library and Archives Canada, 395 Wellington Street, Room 156.
Ottawa StoryTellers offers Story Swap, an open stage night, on the first Thursday of every
month at Library and Archives Canada (Room 156). This is an opportunity to experience
the art of storytelling for the first time or for new storytellers to practice before an audience.
The evenings also include stories by experienced tellers so that new tellers can learn the art.
People are welcome to come and listen, but anyone wishing to tell a story should register on
arrival with the evening’s host, and s/he will be given a time slot. Stories should be no longer
than ten minutes and must be told, not read. They may be traditional stories, folk tales, literary
stories, or personal stories.
