Everyone has stories to tell. You tell them at family gatherings, to friends at parties. Starting with a simple three sentence story and using fun and supportive games, you will create a personal story and present it to family and friends at the final clas. This class is designed to help you feel confident and comfortable sharing a part of your personal experience in a supportive atmosphere. There is no need to come with a story but bring a notebook or journal and your favorite writing instrument. The last Friday of the session will be a performance for the public.

1st Monday's "Let Me Tell You!" A Curated Story Telling Jam
1st Monday of each month storytelling event hosted by 2-time Moth winner Errol McLendon
Everyone tells stories. At family gatherings. In bars and coffee shops. Here is your opportunity to share your personal stories with your community. Stories can be funny or poignant. About love or tragedy, or maybe both. They can be about something you learned or something you wish you had never done. Something historic you witnessed or were a part of.
Submit a description of a 7 - 8 minute story you would like to tell to firstname.lastname@example.org to be included in an evening of friends sharing stories with friends. First time tellers are welcomed and encouraged.
A free Zoom workshop will be offered two weeks prior to each show to help enhance your story in a relaxed, informal environment. One-on-one coaching will also be available.
