Please scroll down to the registration form below if you wish to apply to participate as a Storyteller in Residence.
The Storyteller in Residence (SIR) program is designed as an opportunity for the NBS Seminar to include a select number of skilled storytellers to sojourn with the Seminar for one summer. For those in the Seminar, this on-going experiment provides a learning environment like no other. The SIR(s) will be chosen based on the connection between the storyteller’s skills, experience, and expertise AND the specific needs of the seminar for a given summer. SIRs are full participants in the Seminar for the summer they are chosen. As with all seminar participants, they will cover their own costs and offer their skills as needed by the seminar.
Our focus for the 2020 Scholars’ Seminar is on the Gospel of Mark. We will explore its dynamics and also how it carries within itself echoes of God’s more ancient story.
All participants in the Seminar, members as well as storytellers in residence, will be asked to pay a $100 Seminar registration fee which covers the costs involved with the meeting space and a shared meal each day.
