many other activities you’ll have to clone yourself to get even half of the events.  The second reason for advertising this event: if you are or know a new storyteller, 16 and older

who wants to perform in 2016, have them contact Ming Diaz for consideration and conversation.  We’re looking for newbies and even trainee tellers.  Prepare and tell for 45 minutes

in front of a friendly audience, the rest of the day will be yours to enjoy all the other venues.     240-298-3996.   www.cssm.org/events/festival/
