Storytelling opportunity + 2 cool shows - Hi Everyone,   I hope to see a lot of you a week from tomorrow (Thursday May 28) at the FGS show but if you can’t make that one there are three great shows coming up, one of which still needs storytellers if you’re interested. Paul C. May 20, 2015 6:52 PM
Three more places to tell stories or just listen - Hi Everyone, One last email to let you know of three great opportunities to listen or tell your own story. The first two are A Guide to Visitors and Drunken Telegraph. We’ve had lot of FGS tellers wor Paul C. May 2, 2015 11:26 PM
Thank you! - Thanks to everyone who came out to the show last Thursday. Almost half the storytellers were first-timers! I love it when new people get up there so nervous at first and by the end of their story they can’t wait to do it again.   Now Paul C. Apr 26, 2015 2:26 PM

Full house again! - You guys are killing me with kindness. In the last 24 hours over a bunch of people RSVP'd and now we are officially packed. That's not the word the fire marshal would use but we are definitely stuffed, packed, crammed and jammed. You know how s Paul C. Apr 18, 2015 9:26 AM
Two great shows besides ours coming up - Hi Everyone, The invite for this month's show will go out later today (it's after midnight so I guess it's Saturday) but I wanted to remind you that Bill Bernat, one of our regulars, is doing a one-man show next Saturday on the 11th at 7:30 Paul C.

Thank you - Well that was some show wasn’t it? I’m glad I don’t how this keeps happening because it makes me feel that there’s something special about Roy Street and Fresh Ground Stories that’s bigger than me and therefore out of my control. I am happy t Paul C. Mar 28, 2015 9:56 PM
Full house! - Hi Everyone,   Roy Street Coffee emailed me a couple days ago to tell us that they love the show and that they are getting a little worried about so many people showing up this week. It’s true. We are overwhelming them with story lov Paul C. Mar 23, 2015 10:37 PM

Thank you! - I have to say I don’t think we’ve ever had a show where the crowd was ready to rush the stage and carry the storyteller off on their shoulders. If you missed last Thursday’s show I’m not sure how I can describe what Marjorie did to us. Her stor Paul C. Nov 16, 2014 8:44 PM

FGS people doing good stuff and a one-question survey - Hi Everyone,   I’m looking forward to seeing you at the show next Thursday. I hope a bunch of you bring stories.
