How to Tell a Scary Story


Every storyteller, parent, game master, and camper needs a good scary story in their repertoire. Award-winning storyteller Laura Packer will show you what kinds of scary stories are worth digging into, how to craft a performance that thrills listeners, and how to tell stories that are just right for every age. Come with a story idea or none at all, prompts will be provided. Time permitting, a story circle will follow the class.

TELL: Pittsburgh Storytelling Series ~ Misty Mator


TELL is the transformation of the Three Rivers Storytelling Festival that was held in Pittsburgh, PA, for 16 years. Rather than sponsoring a once-a-year event, TELL now features multiple performances in the fall featuring one teller per evening per month. These stories for adults include comedic issues, current events, and compelling plots that you won't get to hear at a family festival or in a five-minute format.

US$10 – US$32
