You do not have to have participated in past Story Circles to take part in this one, or any in the future. This event is open to all levels of Guild membership. If you want to just listen, you can, but we hope you feel like presenting. This medium is useful not only to tell old favorites, but to develop new stories and explore subjects that you want to challenge yourself to learning. Our fellow listeners often help with alternative endings and ways you can tweak your story for different audiences.
To present, we ask that you tell a story that is 1 – 3 minutes, a story that you give or could give at Arlington National Cemetery. Stories should strive to be inspirational, relevant, competent and memorable.
PLEASE NOTE: Two hours prior to the meeting you will receive an email with a link to join the videoconference. If you decide at that time not to participate, simply ignore the email.
