Hi Everyone,

Just a quick note to let you know of two story-related events coming up and to give you a couple great stories from our May show.

First is the debut party of Story Launch Media this Tuesday at the Olive Way Starbucks. Story Launch Media is run by Kris, one of our FGS regulars, and offers writing and public speaking classes, live events, and digital media publishing services.

Her writing classes will focus on how to identify and write your story. The public speaking classes will focus on how to speak your story without notes or read your story aloud in a way that holds people’s attention.

I’m always happy to let people know about new workshop opportunities for storytelling so that’s why I’m letting you know about this event. The poet Marshay Mitchell will be reading some of her poems that night so I’m making the trip from Olympia to be there. I’m a sucker for poetry. https://marshayartrellmitchell.com/

Doors open at 6 pm, event starts at 6:30 and ends at 8 pm.

Second is the monthly storytelling open-mic in Tacoma called Something To Tell. It’s an open theme so you can bring any true, personal story you want (see their rules for more info)


Lastly, here are a couple of stories from our show a couple months ago 🙂

Bruce protests his Catholic elementary school for giving him too much homework:

Sara learns she has no sense of smell:

That’s all for now. Hope everyone is ready for the heat wave this week. We don’t want to hear any stories about heatstroke! Stay cool, everyone.
