Last week I told a new story about a present I received 20 years ago and how telling the story of that present has been a gift in itself. Right now seems to be a good time to share stories about a time when we got something that was just what we needed. It could be about a physical thing you received or it could be about something that happened at just the right time and in retrospect seems like a pretty great gift. 

Email me through Meetup or at freshgroundstories@gmail.com as soon as possible if you want to get on the list to tell a story.

Remember to practice out loud on as many people as possible and time yourself when you’re doing it. All stories have to be under 8 minutes. The rest of the rules and guidelines for telling are below:

Both are free and run by experienced tellers who have told many times at FGS.

I’ll send out a Zoom registration link to everyone in the Meetup group the day before each show. Feel free to RSVP on Meetup if you want the automatic reminders but I’ll be sending the Zoom link to everyone in the group regardless of your RSVP.

We only have 100 spots in each show (98 actually since me and my assistant each take one spot) so the first 98 people to register for the show will be the only ones who can attend. If you want to tell a story, email me ASAP so I can send you the registration link before I send it to everyone else. 

Write if you have any questions 🙂

See you on the 19th!
