Saturday Chicken Festival $$$12$$$


What?

An entire day of storytelling joy! You can sign up to tell stories by category or to play music. There is a small cost involved, $12.

Breaks will be sprinkled in but Zoom will remain on the entire time so we can flock together and cackle. You are welcome to come and go as desired.

Instead of an auction, this year Laura Packer has been invited to lead a workshop on Fractured Fairytales.

Why?

River and Prairie Storyweavers. NOTE** In 2021 you do not have to be a RAPS member to participate. You are welcome to pay membership dues or donate to RAPS.

Paridae 2021 #12

Tiny mob bosses, Chickadees, share the solstice, So forthright and round.

Inspiration

Sometimes there are poems just floating around. I shared the words for this one from a patreon post by Laura Packer. I remixed them and had a lovely time switching around her words and thinking about the chickadees.
