Fish Tales – Call for Storytellers

The Gloucester Writers Center’s live story telling program Fish Tales is looking for storytellers for the upcoming show on Friday, October 7th, 7:30 PM at the Rocky Neck Cultural Center.

The theme is Tag Team, stories told by two people taking turns. Sisters, brothers, friends, spouses, any two people who share a tale. Please get in touch with Maureen Aylward ( if you have a story to tell with a partner. Don’t delay, only a few spots left in the line-up.

Fish Tales Storyteller Guidelines

  • Stories should be true and from the personal experience of the storyteller.
  • Stories must be stories, not personal narratives about a subject/theme.
  • Stories are most effective if told without reading a script. If this seems difficult, make an outline and tell the story to the mirror a few times, then try it without the outline. Experience tells us that a story that is told and not read has greater lasting power.
  • Stories must be five minutes. Keep an eye on the time keeper who will signal when you are approaching the end of your time. In some venues we only have 1 hour for the show so your help is appreciated in keeping to the 5 minute limit.
  • Storytellers who are far over the 5 minute timeline will not be included in the final cut of our film that appears on Cape Ann TV and posted on the GWC website.
  • Arrive at the venue ten minutes before the start time to find out where you are in the line-up and to get comfortable.
