The Storytelling Guild was created to foster, grow and develop the art of storytelling. There’s a procedure which you should follow to make a good story, and we want to develop that in our storytellers. The Guild was started by Fred Pack who is originally from West Virginia and grew up telling stories at family reunions. Fred has been telling family stories and tall tales for over 20 years. He started the Guild in The Villages six years ago and continues to grow and develop the community.
Storytelling is a way to pass on family information. It is a way for people to find out about their families by the stories that are told and passed down. As a side benefit, it helps improve our memories and our public speaking.
