Welcome to the new online home of Story Arts of Minnesota, formerly Northstar Storytelling.
StoryFest – April 13, 2013
Whether you love the personal narratives of the Moth or dig on folktales from around the world, this storytelling extravaganza is for you. We bring together some of the Twin Cities’ best entertainers to keep you on the edge of your seat all day long. There’ll even be a chill open mic, a beginner’s workshop, and a high-stakes story slam if you want to try your hand behind the mic. You want stories? We’ve got your stories right here. For a full schedule and line-up, visit our StoryFest page!
On Sunday, December 16, at our annual meeting, Story Arts of Minnesota gave our first annual Northstar Storytelling Award to member Pam Schweitzer. For nearly a decade, Pam has been the force behind the majority of SAM’s children’s programming. She founded and runs both our Children’s Storytelling Guild and the monthly event P.J. Stories. She is also a past treasurer of the organization and helped coordinate several of our annual Tellabration! festivals (now StoryFest). Thank you, Pam, and congratulations!
We are still tweaking the site and some pages may not yet be completed. We will also be adding new sections and features over the next several weeks, including:
- Photos and recordings from past Northstar/SAM events
- A history of Northstar Storytelling/SAM
- “What is storytelling?” – definitions from our members and other storytellers
