Mouth Piece Storytelling – The Secrets Edition! 

Thanks to Guest Storyteller Jeni De La O, the theme of secrets was uncovered! Right away, I knew it would be a wonderful theme for our little storytelling engine that could! Jeni is a Moth storyteller (she recently was on a main stage as a guest storyteller – this is a MAJOR storytelling accomplishment!), and she began her own bilingual storytelling series in Detroit called Relato! Detroit. This is Detroit’s FIRST bilingual – Spanish/English – storytelling event! Congratulations to Jeni for creating another wonderful space for storytelling.

At our Secrets event, Jeni shared a true, fascinating and love-filled story about her double life. Be sure to check out our podcast to hear her tell it! We were lucky to hear Jeni tell not one but two stories! Thank you Jeni!

A super thank you to all our Secret storytellers: Dorothy, Geoff, Ian, Kate and Steven.

AND CONGRATULATIONS TO THE MASTER MOUTH PIECE: STORYTELLER DOROTHY!

PUT YOUR STORY WHERE YOUR MOUTH IS!

Mouth Piece – The Danger Edition! The Master Mouth Piece Is…

Our Guest Storyteller Craig Pearson – bungee jumping!

MOUTH PIECE STORYTELLING – THE DANGER EDITION!

Ah, what a superb event we had last night! Our Danger Edition was so many things – emotional, riveting, scary, funny, exciting…and literally dangerous – I totally gave myself a fat lip from bonking my mouth onto the microphone! DOH! Our Guest Storyteller, journalist and writer Craig Pearson, gave a dynamic, heart-breaking and humorous photo presentation of his ‘dangerous’ life as a journalist. Honestly, I had to cover my eyes and hold in my tears a bunch of times! Thank you Craig!

It is my great pleasure to announce that the Master Mouth Piece for the Danger Edition is… Storyteller Geoff!

Geoff and I – cheesin’! Photo credit: Collin Meloche

We had seven brave storytellers take the stage – photos forthcoming – and each had a unique and terrifying story to tell!

Yes, there are prizes to win at Mouth Piece!

Watch out! We are a punny bunch over here…

After a day of dangerous down-pouring – the sun came out!

Seven brave storytellers filled the board, the stage and our hearts!

Thank you also to our musical guest, singer/songwriter (and dangerous heartbreaker!) Brendan Scott Friel!
