What Is Mythology Club?

Mythology Club is a sporadic gathering of people who like to tell and listen to stories. It’s myths as they were meant to be, it’s a sociable way to get some literary and historical awesomeness in your life.

Here’s how it works. We get together for an evening of mythological storytelling and lots of booze. So far it’s been a group of 15-20 people, with between 4-6 people as storytellers each evening.

If you’re a teller, you pick your favorite myth/classical tale (from any culture), and you tell your rendition of it to the assembled throng. The definition of myth is loose. It could be from a classical tradition like Greek, Egyptian, Norse. It could also be the Ballad of Stagger Lee, or your own whopping fish story if it’s personal classic. The main thing is that it has a ritual quality that comes from repeated telling, and you make it yours. You don’t have to be an expert storyteller. We’re a friendly lot.
