Rebecca Storyweaver Cohen, Telling stories into writable form, Newport

August 16, 2015 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Sunday, August 16, 2015, 2-4 p.m.
McEntee Room, Newport Public Library

Spend a couple of hours with Rebecca Storyweaver Cohen, children’s
librarian and long-time traditional storyteller. Attendees will hear
stories that come from the Central Oregon Coast, stories told for many
years until the storyteller is satisfied that the tale has found its best
form and is ready for performance. Listeners will learn how these
stories are found and crafted for audiences of all ages and interests.
There will be time for people to tell and work on their own stories.

WW’s Coast Chapter typically meets on the third Sunday of each
month at 2:00. For more information call Theresa Wisner at 541-351-
8002. Information is also available at http://willamettewriters.com/coast/
