The League for the Advancement of Northeast Storytelling (LANES) is holding its 35th annual Sharing the Fire Storytelling Conference at the UMass Hotel & Conference Center in Amherst April 1-3. Some of the best storytellers in the Northeast will be presenting. The conference, which has the theme Storytelling in a Changing World, is for both advanced and aspiring storytellers. Members of RILA might be interested in attending the conference, and LANES is offering members of RILA, who would be new members of LANES, free membership for those signing up for the full registration at the member price of $235. The membership fee is normally $55. Visit http://lanes.org/ for more details about the conference.
