STORYFEST Celebrates Its Third Annual Festival March 24th

Storytellers, authors, and presenters gather together for a third year of celebrating the power of stories of all kinds to excite, reflect, and express our everyday lives beginning at 9am SLT Sunday March 24th at Bran in SL.

Stories help us feel connect and unique all at the same time.  They can provide both the questions you want, and the answers you seek.  At their very core, they delight and inspire.  There's a mushroom or a rustic bench waiting for you!  See the schedule at StoryFest SL Events online - All times SLT, and all but one session will be held at the StoryCircle.  http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Bran/78/141/24

This StoryFest benefits War Child North America, and is produced in partnership between Stories Unlimited! and Branwen Arts.  StoryFest Events produces four annual festival events on the Second Life (c) grid: StoryFest (March), Bard on the Virtual Beach (August), BOOFest (October), and recently debuted  The Dickens Project (December) in the hopes of making it an annual event.

ALL Presentations are Live in Voice, unless otherwise noted.

ARTS and LITERATURE: Let The "Bard" Times Roll!


There is nothing quite like an outdoor festival, even a virtual one!  Saturday and Sunday, August 18th and 19th will see the sandy shores of Mango in the Fruit Islands once again host Shakespeare and Shakespeare-inspired performances on the BARD ON THE VIRTUAL BEACH outdoor Festival Stage.  (Don't forget to wave at "Ismael" the whale, and bring something to feed "Yorrick" the pesky peacock). 
  Each day features different performances, with Saturday’s event beginning at 3:00pm and Sunday’s at Noon.  Each session is approximately 90 minutes in length, but it is a Festival and anything could happen!  Last year’s BARD drew more residents to the Fruit Islands than virtual ABBA did, so it could be adviseable to get there a little early and scope out your seat.  As always with live performances in the virtual world, your enjoyment and everyone else’s will be enhanced if you remove as many huds, mysti-tool, bling, scripted clothing, and primmy hair as possible: keep it simple, and don’t be naked!
