4th Mondays at the Beach Art Center

Sign in 6:30pm /show 7:00pm

Join us on the 4th Monday of every month, for an evening of storytelling.

Walt Belcher, a former Tampa Tribune columnist and newspaper reporter, is a known storyteller in the Tampa Bay area. Walt will offer a short talk on the craft of a good story and then the evening will continue with both novice and experienced storytellers sharing true and not-so-true stories with the audience. Storytelling is the interactive art of using words and actions to reveal the elements and images of a story while encouraging the listener's imagination.

 

If you’d like to share a tale, please write it, memorize it and practice it before that evening. You will have about 7 minutes to perform your story if your name is drawn from the hat. Please arrive between 6:30 and 7 p.m. to add your name to the list.

 

While we are not charging a cover, we will appreciate a suggested $5 donation.

Parking is free and the donation bar will be open with beverages available.

Registration is not required to attend this event.
