Have you ever fantasized about being a guest on a talk show? What story would fascinate a crowd? All of us have at least one true tale that happened to us and when the time is right, it would be wonderful to tell “your story” with confidence. You can hear the roar of laughter or draw a tear from the hard-hearted, a gasp when you–the protagonist–fall upon some unpredictable situation. Everyone is spellbound!

Storytelling Workshop

1. Via email, submit a five-minute true story that happened to you. Choose an unusual, pivotal, fun, frightening, coming-of-age, funny, irreverent, sentimental or Aha! incident on any subject. Time your tale to be about five minutes (about four pages double spaced.)

2. I edit your story giving it the most powerful impact possible and email it back to you, along with two pages of pointers to help structure and organize yourself. (You may use notes, read your story or tell it.) We all know someone who is “all over the place” while telling a story. Not you!

3. In two groups storytellers receive valuable performance coaching by the workshop facilitators. (Only five students per teacher.)

4. Invite friends to the storytelling show-for free

Meet at 4pm at Shelter VG4 Theater. Vicente Guerrero 4, 415- 154-7524. Please bring edited story with you. For coaching January 30, 150 pesos
