The March topic for the Storytellers’ group is “How I Met My Spouse”--OR “How My Parents Met” OR “How My Grandparents Met.”
Set the scene: When and where (include sensory details); who was present. Then tell about the “trigger,” the event which set in motion all that was to follow. If appropriate, tell about the first date and/or courtship as well. If you want, you can conclude with information about the wedding.
Bring three paper copies of your story to our meeting. We’ll read each other’s stories and offer suggestions (as well as praise) before we share our stories with our own families. Storytellers are also invited to submit finished work to CAGGNI's Newsletter for publication.
