What we're about

This group is actually going to be several groups, all associated or affiliated in some way with The Storytelling Association of California, or SAC. Many local area groups meet for story swaps, storytelling performances and/or storytelling workshops, and this will be the place where they are announced and promoted through Meetup. The calendar for all events can be found at http://www.storysaac.org/calendar.html
