StoryMasters is an advanced Toastmasters club whose members devote themselves to creating magic by mastering the ancient art of storytelling. The club meets on the 2 nd Sunday of each month from 3:00 p.m.-5:00 p.m.
StoryMasters meetings are currently conducted on Zoom. To help ensure the magic happens in this digital forum, we coach our members on proper lighting, camera position, and other delivery and technical skills for online presentations.
Please visit us soon! You will enjoy 5-6 stories, followed by individual and round-robin evaluations.
We are dedicated to
