STORYTELLERS UNITE TO BRING BOOKS AND BOOK LIGHTS TO PUERTO RICO!

STNM has actively participated in an effort to provide books and book lights to children impacted by  Hurricane María in Puerto Rico that has left many on the island without power.  As of January 1st, the project has raised $10,585 ($5,785 in cash and $4,800 in books) and has already sent book lights and books to Puerto Rican children who remain without electricity following the hurricane.  Thanks to STNM board members, Bob Kanegis and Liz Mangual, who have personal ties to the island, for doing the leg work to bring this project to fruition.  Thanks to all those who donated to make their vision quickly become a reality!  Learn all about this exciting initiative for which STNM is proud to participate as fiscal agent.  Visit the Puerto Rico Project page on this website for an end of the year 2017 update. 














Thanks for giving these children a life line through your contributions and support of the Puerto Rico Book Project!

STNM LAUNCHES DUKE CITY STORY SLAM - MARCH 22, 2018

THEME:  "FIRSTS'

RED DOOR BREWING COMPANY

400 GOLD AVENUE #105, ALBUQUERQUE

​7-9 PM




















Duke City Story Slam is a monthly storytelling event where people get on the mic to tell true stories from their lives, without any notes, on that month’s theme. Audience members can put their name in the hat for a chance to tell a 5-min Open Mic story and Featured Tellers are recruited beforehand for 10-min slots. Stories are judged from 1-10 by a small panel of (kind, supportive, enthusiastic) volunteer judges and top scores take home a prize! If you like The Moth, you’ll love Duke City Story Slam - the only Story Slam in Albuquerque! DCSS is a production of Storytellers of New Mexico in collaboration with Red Door Brewing Company.

 


 














Special thanks to STNM incoming board member, Nash Jones, for the impetus to bring this project to fruition.

NEW MEXICO/COLORADO STORY CAMP 2018

SEPTEMBER 14-16, 2018

LOCATION: THE FITZGERALD CENTER

JEMEZ SPRINGS, NEW MEXICO


Storytellers of New Mexico, in collaboration with Rocky Mountain Storytellers, has held two mid-September Story Camps.  If you missed the September 2017 event, plan ahead now to attend the 2018 Story Camp!  This weekend provides opportunities for cross pollination with Colorado (and even Kansian and Wyoming) storytellers in a relaxed, fun and learning filled atmosphere.  We are delighted to have found The Fitzgerald Center in gorgeous Jemez Springs for the 2018 weekend.  Not only that, but STNM's own Joe Hayes, has agreed to be one of the two workshop presenters.  A second presenter will be provided from Colorado.  Keep watching this site for new/developing information.  


Here are some photos from the September 2017 event in Colorado!
