10am - 11:30am - Workshop with Tim Lowry

Telling the Tall Tale (a workshop for beginning to intermediate storytellers) The Tall Tale is a uniquely American folk genre. It is beholden on all us children of Uncle Sam to learn how to tell a good whopper! In this workshop Tim will review the basic elements of a tall tale, tell a sample story, give an entertaining history of tall tale telling, and lead the group in a variety of exercises that will help you develop larger than life characters, impossible situations, and fantastic fixes for an original tall tale that is second to none. Come learn to lie with the best of them!
