I added a couple of feeds to this blog in the past couple days, one of them being anything tagged "storytelling" in del.icio.us. I saw this and thought it was cool: There's an event called "The Story" in London on Feb. 18.
It bills itself as "a one-day conference about stories and story-telling ...
"The Story will be a celebration of everything that is wonderful, inspiring and awesome about stories, in whatever medium possible. We’re hoping to have stories that are written, spoken, played, described, enacted, whispered, projected, orchestrated, performed, printed – whatever form stories come in, we hope to have them here.
"The Story is not about theories of stories, or making money from stories, but about the sheer visceral pleasure of telling a story."
I don't know. This event may have to become this blog's unofficial mascot or something.
