The storytelling community lost a hugely influential member on January 2, 2019. Carol McGirr was a StorySave teller, and founder of the long-lived Fireside Epic series. Carol’s impact on Canadian storytelling was profound. She believed “storytellers come and go. It is the story that lives happily ever after.” Our condolences to Carol's friends and family.

Happy World Storytelling Day!
Storytellers are invited to submit applications for the 16th Annual St John’s Storytelling Festival taking place St John’s, NL, from September 22 – 29, 2019, and for our festival in 2020. We are also considering tellers for various aspects of our year-round programming.
SC-CC is excited to announce we're hosting a day-long storytelling workshop on March 10th in Toronto. "The Metastory of the Shoe Project" will examine the use of the shoe as a metaphor for journeys of newcomers to Canada based on the example of The Shoe Project.
Mark your calendars for March 10th in Toronto to join in on a fantastic workshop with Teenaz Javat and Yuli Hu of The Shoe Project. The Metastory of the Shoe explores the journeys of newcomers to Canada and how storytelling can be used to improve written and spoken English.
Ticket information coming soon!
