Martha Frankel is the executive director of the Woodstock Writers Festival, and the author of the acclaimed memoir, Hats and Eyeglasses. She is the host of the weekly show, Woodstock Writers Radio, on Radio Woodstock 100.1, available for streaming any time at Woodstock Writers Radio: The Shows.
But more importantly, she is the daughter of Sylvia Frankel, who insisted that everyone has a story to tell. “It’s all in how you tell it,” Sylvia was fond of saying.
In the Frankel home, a good story was more revered than good grades, which tells you so much about Martha’s entire school career.
StorySlams are always a standing-room-only part of the festival, and this partnership with Kris Garnier feels totally organic and fab.
So, what’s your story?

Kris Garnier loves to listen to stories and she really wants to hear yours!
For over thirty years, Garnier has been writing and performing her stories and songs live on stages, public radio stations, and in the echoing hallways of the Parisian Metro. One of her coolest accomplishments was being a guitarist for the Debs, an all-girl rock band, in the late 1970’s. In her spare time she practices her accordion and identifies plants. She learned to curtsey at age 5.
