Fish Tales: Live Storytelling at Gloucester Writers Center

When: 7:30 PM on Thursday, January 17th (1/17/13)

What:

The Gloucester Writers Center presents Fish Tales!: Live Storytelling, a live storytelling event that is looking for storytellers for the inaugural event. Similar to The Moth Story Hour on NPR, at Fish Tales you will tell your true story live in front of an audience. The story must be no more than five minutes from beginning to end, and should follow a traditional story arc—having an introduction to set the stage, a story climax, and a conclusion. Those are really the only criteria that we have. “Fish Tales” will be a bi-monthly event, and each reading will have a different overarching theme.

About E.J.

Artist, researcher, writer, spiritual traveler of this fascinating orb we inhabit, lover of life and all it has to offer. Hi everyone out there in GMG land. My name is Ellen “E.J.” Lefavour (a/k/a “Ejay Khan” – the pseudonym I used during my years as a political activist artist). I moved to Cape Ann in September of 2010, and was thrilled to be invited by Joey to become a daily contributor to Good Morning Gloucester in December of that year. I am a painter, photographer and writer who has lived and worked as an artist for 20 years, since leaving the corporate world in 1990 to pursue my passion. My contributions to GMG will consist of images (either my paintings, photographs, montages or the occasional video) and a little history about the image, called “Did you Know?” I hope to come up with tidbits of information that people don’t already know, or had forgotten they knew. As I am new here, everything is new and fascinating to me, especially the amazing history, so bear with me if I post something that is common knowledge – I’ll eventually come up with something that’s new to you. As an artist, I will also write about the incredible art scene on Cape Ann. Please take a minute to comment on my posts, like them or not, especially if you have corrections or something to add, as that is how I, and all of us, learn. Have a Good Morning Gloucester, and a blessed day.
