    SPRING RETREAT         with MEGAN WELLS     at WILDACRES Retreat 


May 24 - 26, 2024I

Imagine this...you have a story, yearning to come to life, grow, and bloom in the world. So you and your story escape from daily distractions to a quiet lodge on top of a beautiful NC mountain. Then, with care and humility, you tell your story to one of the most sought-after storytelling coaches in the country, surrounded by a circle of Delighted Listeners - your storyteller friends eager to learn with you - as your coach lovingly helps you polish your little gem. And in the process, we all learn together and enjoy the unique alchemy of storytelling. 



Our bi-annual journal featuring articles on all aspects of storytelling from contributors throughout our region.
