Ways to Get Involved

    • Become a member of the Festival Steering Committee.
      The committee meets once a month year-round, but many duties can be done from home and/or electronically. We always need people to help distribute flyers, to address brochures, to make contacts with local media, etc. If you are interested, contact sara.slayton@gmail.com
    • Become an advocate for storytelling in your circle of influence.
      We can give you information to share with other volunteer, civic, and community organizations to which you belong. Let us know what you need at: sara.slayton@gmail.com
    • Volunteer at the Fest! The festival ‘runs’ on our volunteers. We need people set up and take down, hand out wrist bands, man the food counter, oversee the silent auction and sales of the tellers’ merchandise,  fold programs just to name a few of the duties.

  • Hire a storyteller for your next event.
    Our local professional tellers have experience telling to large and small groups from all walks of life. We can (and have) told at business meetings, organization meetings, Red Hat Societies, Church events, health organizations, at all levels of education (pre-K – Higher Ed), festivals, dinners, holiday celebrations, library programs, etc.

Want to join in on the fun of storytelling? Become a part of the Bluff Country Tale Spinners (BCTS)!

During BCTS guild meetings, announcements are made about current local, state, regional, and national storytelling events and there is a brief time used for guild business. However, most of the time is spent sharing stories. Beginner through advanced tellers share stories and receive feedback from Guild members.

Storytellers do not have to be professional, they only need to have a love of stories. Shared stories come from personal experience, folklore, legends, history and numerous other sources. Story listeners are always welcome!

BCTS Meetings are held the second Thursday of every month from 7 to 8:30 p.m. at King Street Kitchen,
