Learn how to tell an epic story by observing Women who have been successfully reciting stories!
Join Ellouise Schoettler on Stories in Focus at Home with her special guest Jessica Robinson, the Founder of Better Said Than Done. On March 18-20, Better Said Than Done is producing The 2022 Women’s Storytelling Festival with 22 Storytellers! This festival was born from a need to change the inequality of featured storytellers, who were and still are predominantly men. The Women’s Storytelling Festival raises women up on a larger platform for them to share their stories to a wider audience.
The 2022 Women’s Storytelling Festival brings a combination of a live performance at the Old Town Hall in Fairfax City, VA and a live stream, for people to choose how they are comfortable being an audience member. Included with your In person or virtual ticket is a month long access to a link with all 22 stories, so you can rewatch the storytellers at home. There is a mix of styles including Folk Tales, Personal Stories, Tall Tales, and Adventure Stories…but there is no theme at the festival, except there is an underlying motif of stories women are telling this year that just happened and occurred at last years festival too.
The live performance Covid Policy requires people to always wear a mask and be vaccinated. Vaccination cards will be checked at the door, the audience size will be limited, and people will be spaced out providing the safest possible space.
