The New Mexico/Colorado Story Camp takes place annually, in the fall, rotating between locations in Colorado and New Mexico. This year's event, scheduled for the weekend of September 14-16, 2018, is located at the beautiful Fitzgerald Center in Jemez Springs, New Mexico.
Join us for two fantastic workshops, breakout sessions, open mic storytelling far into the night, walks around the labyrinth or down by the river, and more.
New Mexico's Centennial Storyteller and acclaimed author presents:
Gimme That Ol’ Time Re-telling
Gather ‘round, you true believers,
four-square folkies, born again liars and raconteurs.
Let’s jump and holler about the precious gift we give
--and we receive--
when we honor the old, traditional tales.
It was good for all the ages,
For the prophets and the sages,
Long before the written pages,
And it’s good enough for me.
There is unlikely to be anyone of Joe Haye's stature as a storyteller, researcher, author and friend in the Southwest. We are deeply honored to have Joe present a workshop about the craft of selecting, crafting, and presenting traditional tales. Learn how these skills can support you no matter which direction your storytelling may take you, from the telling of traditional folk tales, myths, and legends to crafting personal stories for any venue (from story slams to the Moth).
Rocky Mountain Storytelling member presents:
Music at the Crossroads - Where Story and Music Meet
Rachel Ann Harding, a storyteller, musician and author based in Boulder, Colorado,
presents a workshop on the interface between storytelling and the use of
music. Bring along your own favorite musical instruments, and prepare to
be enchanted! Plus, the Fitzgerald Center includes a Drum Circle space where
we may well apply Rachel's suggestions in an afternoon or evening jam
Evening Story Slams, Shared Meals, Networking, Free Time & More!
Story Camp participants identify topics of interest for afternoon breakout sessions on Saturday. Past sessions have included such topics as: Therapeutic or Healing Stories; Personal/Slam storytelling; Storytelling with Children. The sky's the limit! Bring your ideas and prepare to share with your peers. Plus, The Fitzgerald Center offers a number of excellent locations for breakout groups, including the River Walk and Drum Circle.
The Story Camp schedule includes time for open mic storytelling where you can share a story in progress or a polished tale with your peers. Often, we keep going far into the night! Story Camp also offers opportunities to connect with your peers from Colorado (and other western states), take walks along the Jemez River, walk the labyrinth, share meals and tales together and more.
