would you like to be a Fugitive Storyteller?
We invite a number of experienced storytellers to entertain our audiences. We also reach out to local folks — some experienced, some not — to be scheduled storytellers at our events. If you would like to tell at one of our events, click here to make a request. We'll get back to you.
The Gallery at Villageworks, West Acton
Our May event was the last of our Winter/Spring series at Villageworks. We've had a wonderful year here, supported by a strong community of storytellers and a committed local audience. We do this for the joy of it, and there has been more than enough to go around. Based on the strength of what we have achieved in Acton, we were invited to bring our special brand of storytelling to Amazing Things Arts Center in Framingham and to Kickstand Café in Arlington. We've also started to work with nonprofit organizations, helping them include storytelling in their fundraising efforts. In every way possible, it's been a stellar year. Thank you all for helping to make it so.
We are taking the summer off in our Acton location. Soon, we'll be posting dates and themes for our fall series. Frankly, we'd like to see even more folks reap the benefits of this fulfilling experience. We depend on you to reach out to those you know to invite them to join us.
If you have yet to do so, sign up for our eblast so you'll be the first to know about our plans for the fall. And, if you'd like to tell your story with us, at any of our locations, click here to send us a query.

This June, Fugitive Stories will be kicking off a three-event summer series in Arlington. Invited tellers prepare five- to six-minutes stories. Each month, we'll be bringing Moth and Massmouth winners, along with others from the local arts community, to share their stories. Do you want to tell your story on our theme. Sign up at the cafe or fill out our online query. We'll get back to you to let you know if you're in. Depends on how many folks reach out. We also invite audience members who are interested in telling a two- to three-minute story on our theme to drop their name in a hat. If chosen, they’ll tell their tale.
