Happy New Year from Told! As people take a moment to reflect on the past year and plan for the next, we’d like to think that your highs and lows have and will be defined by inspiring, funny, and human stories. Hopefully you have benefitted from hearing a good tale at a Told event or on the podcast–or maybe you have benefitted from telling one!
Over 60 stories have been shared at live Told events in 2015, and about 24 have been shared over the podcast. Check out a special Best of 2015 podcast episode we posted that features some of our favorite stories from the year. If you haven’t yet, give us a review in the iTunes store–this helps tremendously with visibility.
In 2016, Told will see some exciting changes. Jill Grunenwald has been a Told storyteller both as a feature and audience volunteer. In 2016, she will come aboard as a co-producer of live events. She and Dave will alternate hosting and curating duties for all live events. They will also both curate the podcast. In addition to telling stories at Told, Keep Talking, and Story Club Cleveland, Jill is a blogger and podcaster in her own right. Jill is developing her podcast, Running with Police Escort, into a book to be published by Skyhorse Publishing in 2017.
We will continue with our live events this year, starting with Told #13 on February 10 at Market Garden Brewery. Info on the theme and featured storytellers will roll out soon. Check the Cleveland storytelling calendar for tentative dates on all our 2016 shows as well as dates for all the storytelling shows in the area.
If your organization would like to partner with Told for a special event, let us know! We have had great success hosting events in many capacities, and our format is highly customizable to your needs.
As always, we want to help you tell your story. If you have a story to tell, contact us to help you craft your story and then get it out in our live shows or podcast.
Thanks! Resolve to create some inspiring stories in 2016!
