The goal of the Storytelling Jam Winter Workshops is to encourage community members to develop, write and tell (or read) their stories in a culmination performance on March 13. Writing and performance exercises will be used throughout the winter as we build towards the live public performance. Materials Needed: A notebook and a pen or pencil.
Please Note: This program is designed for adults and mature teens (with parental consent). Some storytelling content may contain adult themes and/or language. This is not an open mic-type event.
