The Asheville Storytelling Circle meets at 7:00
on the third Monday of each month except August and December
at Asheville Terrace, 200 Tunnel Rd. in Asheville.
Tellers, whether professional or amateur, come from all walks of life--physicist, carpenter, teacher, librarian, entertainer, musician, environmentalist, homemaker to mention just a few. All are continually learning more about stories and about cultivating the traditional art of storytelling for both adults and youth. Stories may entertain, instruct, heal, or be just downright fun. Some tell stories familiar to the Appalachian area such as Jack tales while others call on a different heritage such as Jewish, Native American, Irish, or Scottish. Most tellers are eclectic, using stories from a variety of sources and for a variety of occasions. Profiles and contact information for many members of the ASC are accessible in the List of Members.
The monthly meetings begin with a short business meeting, then after a break, members wishing to do so swap stories in the Circle. New members and guests are always welcome to attend and to tell a story. In addition to the monthly meetings, the ASC sponsors several storytelling events throughout the year and sponsors and promotes workshops.
