April 7-9, 2017

once upon a time . . .

in a beautiful land along the Hood Canal, story lovers gathered from far and near.
Some had told stories for many years. Some were practicing a new skill. Some just loved to hear a well-spun tale.
Stories and good food and fun were all around. Everyone found exactly what they came looking for. After this retreat
. . . they all lived happily ever after!
Long story short . . . Come join the fun!

Fanning the Embers: a Northwest Storytelling Retreat
For story lovers in the northwest region, and beyond, Fanning the Embers retreat provides an opportunity to gather informally in a relaxed environment. We share success and quandaries, our dreams and our nightmares, our questions and aspirations. And we share stories! Lots of stories.

Fanning the Embers has become a northwest storytelling tradition. We are sure the 2017 gathering will be as rejuvenating for participants as it has been in years past. Fan the flame and spread the word!
