Live Storytelling Workshops
We all know them…people who can tell a riveting story and keep their listeners hanging on their every word. Here is your chance to become one of those people. A cohort of talented moderators from San Francisco’s famed Porchlight Storytelling series
will guide participants in mining their lives for material. Porchlight has been on the forefront of this genre for more than 10 years. Over the course of one evening, you will learn to perform a personal story live, and may end up as a featured storyteller at a Naked Truth live performance.
Space is limited, so please only register for one session.
