Storyteller Bios: 


Patricia Fagan, a refugee from the vanities, obsessions and greed of an old colonial West Indian family came to the United States - NYC – at eighteen years old to encounter the culture of the Seventies.  At this time she gave birth to her son while pursuing her undergraduate degree. Later, she moved to Connecticut, where she completed her Masters in Literature and the Arts from Wesleyan University. At this time, she began storytelling with the Ct. Storytelling Group, performing her stories in such historic places as The Stonycreek Puppet House, and Eli Whitney Barn.   Her poems and short stories have been published in: Sinister Wisdom, Embers, The Caribbean Writer, River City and recently her poem, “Daydreams on a Subway Train,” has been selected to be used in McGraw Hill’s college writing textbook, Spotlight on Music.  Patricia has also written travel pieces and book reviews for The New Haven Register and Grolier Press, respectively.  In the mid-eighties, she traveled and lived in Mexico collecting stories.   After a year there, she came to Tucson and earned her MFA in Creative Writing from the U of A.  After fifteen years of owning a small business, she went back to teach Writing at Pima Community College, West Campus.

Storytelling is a way to make connections with diverse and different people that you may not meet in your every day life. Because these stories are from our lives they may be amazing, messy, enlightening, disturbing, and entertaining . . . and more.


NEXT SHOW

Six invited storytellers have ten minutes to talk about a specific theme. The stories are not read or memorized, they are told from the life experiences and creativity of the teller.
