A Note from the President

Hello my friends,


My tulips and irises and pushing up through the soil. Nature is trying to bring Spring to our doors. I am afraid old man Winter has not finished his job just yet. One day it is 60 degrees and the next it is 16 degrees. Will my flowers survive?


In some cultures, stories are told only from the first snowfall to the last one. In my neck of the woods the weather changes so rapidly, I think we better be ready to share a story any time of the year, and that’s what we do.


This year MO-TELL will be sponsoring four online events that will reach listeners near and far.

When Spring really hits, we will be helping to put storytellers in the Missouri State Parks. I hope you will be able to catch some of these shows.


Do not forget our Liars Contest. This year marks the ninth one. It will be in the St. Louis area again. The date is July 8. Watch for the updated rules soon to be posted on the website.

We also will be contacting you about your memories and stories of Missouri Storytelling, Inc.

Sharing our stories is so important to ourselves, our community and to the world. Please keep telling your tales.


Love to you all,

Joyce Slater

President of MO-TELL
