What we're about

Welcome, and thanks for your interest in joining "Do Tell!", a Northern NJ/Rockland County place to tell and appreciate our true stories. It’s in your story that you reveal yourself; you give a gift, and have it received; and together we discover what makes us all unique, and alike.

This "Moth-like" evening begins with some interactive storytelling games; some free-form, raise-your-hand storytelling on a common theme; and one or more longer-form personal stories developed for presentation (see schedule for Monthly Saturday-morning workshops).

It's never a problem if you'd rather just listen to what others have to share: appreciative audience members are always welcome. Participation in any activity is at your choice.

"Do Tell! Story Night" happens the second Friday of every month from 7:30 until 9:30pm. Join us at the Bergen Ethical Culture Society Meetinghouse, 687 Larch Ave, Teaneck, NJ.
