Storytelling for adults & teens
Tuesday, November 14, 2023 from 7 to 9 pm
There are times when being able to talk to an experienced storyteller would help us take our storytelling to the next level. It may be simply getting a better idea of how to structure our story, make it more engaging, or practice and iron out rough spots. 

And then there are questions: How do you find a story, build a personal story from scratch, or find your ideal audience? 

We know these and many more topics would be great to explore with another teller. 

So we invite you to join us at Office Hours!

How does it work?

You will sign up for a specific 30-minute time slot.

Send an email to prior to the Thursday before the Office Hours or as soon as possible to get a good time slot for yourself. This gives us time to bring in an "expert" if needed. For example, if there were questions about folktales, we could ask Beth Wakelee if she was able to join us. 

Times are assigned first come first serve. We will confirm your “appointment” and send you a Zoom link. 

Please include information about your questions, or if you are practicing a story, what the genre of your story is. By registering for this you will have an individual opportunity to discuss your interest specifically or to tell your story in a safe and non-judgmental space.

At Do Tell Story Swap we want to help you join this community more fully and enjoy your experience of telling your stories. Please direct any questions about this to the email above. 

We are looking forward to hearing from you!
The 2024 Bay Area Storytelling Festival North was an amazing day of community, filled with the joy of storytelling. If you missed the day, you can see all the action with our Now Streaming ticket.
