Program Details

bird sculptures near lake in New HampshireThe morning begins at 8:00 am with registration and breakfast followed by some announcements and the keynote address at 9:00 am. This is followed by your first chance to tell your own story in the story swap circle.

Then who can resist the "free" lunch provided to us by our sponsors and board members? What a great time to get together and talk story.

Since the beginning, the afternoon concerts with multiple tellers have been a highlight.

This year there will be a concert of storytellers presenting stories, followed by story swap circles and ending with the closing concert featuring Diane Edgecomb.

Anyone wishing to attend only Diane's afternoon concert can do so for a fee of $10 (no member discount). You can purchase tickets for this concert below or at the door on the day of the concert.

Venue Information

CHANGE IN VENUE FOR GSSS 2018.

The event committee is very excited and pleased to announce that this years Granite State Story Swap will take place at Geneva Point Center in Moultonborough, NH, on May 5, 2018.

Geneva Point’s gorgeous location on Lake Winnipesaukee is a special place for people to come together and share stories, while rubbing elbows with some of the best storytellers from New Hampshire and the New England area. You will be surrounded by lake and mountain views, over one mile of shoreline, and nearly two hundred acres of wooded land.

Geneva Point is just an hour from Concord, an hour-and-a-half from Manchester, and two hours from Portsmouth, NH.

Please save the date – and spread the word of the change in venue to all storytellers, and those that may be interested in attending this years special event at a special location. The venue in Rye was nice, but imagine that times ten!
