The Mountain State Storytelling Institute, a two day conference, was held in the Falcon Center, Fairmont State Univ., Fairmont, WVA.

  • Meeting new interesting and friendly folks.
  • Re-Connecting with West Virginia storytellers.
  • Hearing fresh stories.
  • A presentation by Jane Gilbert that opened a book I have owned for years to me in a new way. Ruth Ann Musik the author of Green Hills of Magic, was a folklorist who collected European Folktales told by immigrants from many countries who came to West Virginia.
  • Presenting my workshop, Flesh on Old Bones, to a room of participants who welcomed the information.
