The storytelling community has been dealt a hard blow by the COVID-19 pandemic. If not affected by the illness itself, many in our community have been hard hit by the economic consequences of this virus. While this pandemic’s reach has been wide and demanding of attention, we realize that there are many times when storytellers need relief. The Storyteller Relief Fund is established as an ongoing fund to extend relief to storytellers with urgent financial needs due to any national, regional, local, or personal emergency, disaster, or loss.
The Storyteller Relief Fund, administered by Artists Standing Strong Together (ASST), receives donations and disburses funds to help storytellers in urgent need of funds from the cancellation of storytelling programs due to any major disaster or emergency.To donate  and find more info:

We always like to share the stories told at Do Tell Story Swaps, and now you can see videos of the Swap on YouTube sponsored by SAC. Please follow these links to see the most recent video:


​Hello, Friends of the Do Tell Story Swap!

Last Tuesday, March 9th, we once again gathered on Zoom to share friendship and stories. Sponsored by SAC, our Zoom session brought 18 people on a cold and rainy night to share stories. It was one of those nights I’m so glad to have Zoom so we didn’t even have to leave our warm homes or hot cups of tea (or other favorite beverage!).

Brandon Spars was again our host bringing us together and providing the friendly tone of the Swap. Stories were told by Beth Wakelee, Meg Brown, Vicky Ness, Ed Lewis, Sharon Elwell, Katy Mangan, and Elaine Stanley. This month, traditional stories took main stage, though not by any plan. The Swap welcomes all types of stories. Sharon’s historical story about Zebuon Pike was the exception, in a way. But the fantastic story of Pike has the qualities of a traditional hero story that fit right in. A summary of the stories presented can be found on our Do Tell Story Swap web site under the “Story Summaries” tab.  

We hope you will join us from the comfort of your own home to hear stories and bring your own. Remember, we welcome all types of stories and keep a friendly and supportive atmosphere at the Swap. So come on into the Zoom room on Tuesday, April 13th at 7:00 pm and let’s have fun together sharing life’s stories and keeping story telling alive in our community. 

Your feedback, thoughts and questions are always welcome. Email us at
