A lot has changed recently, but one thing has remained the same. Storytelling – in all its forms – is a powerful bond that connects and unites us as individuals and communities. Through the sharing of stories, our differences matter less and our individuality is celebrated more. In these unpredictable times, Coyote Tales is committed to continue to provide a stage to share our experiences and our stories. We hope not only to entertain but to foster deeper empathy and understanding in our community with each event.
Please join us for the Third Virtual Coyote Tales Storytelling Night! The date for the event is, Friday, October 2nd, and the theme for the evening’s stories is, “Chance Meeting.” Storytellers are welcome to interpret the theme in any way they choose. We are pleased to welcome more experienced tellers to this event, but we need you too!
Share your story. Please consider submitting a true, on-theme, first person, story for possible inclusion. Use your smartphone to record the audio and video of you telling your 3 minute tale. *Hints – Hold your phone horizontally when recording. It produces a better video. And, your video should be of only you telling the story. Props, accompaniments and visual aids are not allowed. Then, when you are ready to share your tale, shoot me an email through the contact link on our website and I will send you a link to upload your video to our site. Our panel of judges will choose the top ten submissions and then post them on the Coyote Tales website the evening of the show.
We will be offering a spot at a Matthew Dicks' Storytelling Workshop as the grand prize. This is a unique virtual workshop experience with only 6 other participants. Matthew Dicks is a 50-time Moth StorySLAM champion and 6-time GrandSLAM champion whose stories have been featured on their nationally syndicated Moth Radio Hour and their weekly podcast. One of his stories has also appeared on PBS’s Stories From the Stage. Matthew is the internationally bestselling author of the novels Memoirs of an Imaginary Friend, Something Missing, Unexpectedly, Milo, The Perfect Comeback of Caroline Jacobs, Storyworthy: Engage, Teach, Persuade, and Change Your Life through the Power of Storytelling, and the upcoming Twenty-one Truths About Love, The Other Mother and Cardboard Knight. His novels have been translated into more than 25 languages worldwide.
Log on to “see” the show. On October 2nd, sign on to the Coyote Tales website and watch the stories online. We have some amazing tellers lined up but are anxious to hear your story. Virtual audience members get to vote for their favorite tale of the evening too!

We can’t wait to gather with you to share stories live at Zion Brewery Station 2, but until the time when we can gather safely, this is virtually the next best thing.
