None of us gets through this life on our own. Somebody somewhere helped us out. In fact, it was probably more than one person. Whether it was a surgeon who literally saved your life or a friend who let you stay on their couch when you lost your job, you have a few people on your gratitude list. Come tell a story on November 17 about when one of those people was there for you.

Remember to practice your story out loud on as many people as possible and time yourself when you’re doing it. All stories have to be under 8 minutes. Stories can be as short as you want but not over 8 minutes. Stories also have to be clean in both language and content. Send me an email (freshgroundstories at Gmail dot com) if you have any questions about that.

The rest of the rules and guidelines are below: 

I’ll send out the Zoom info through Meetup on November 14. I’ll also post it here at

Workshops are a great way to get feedback on a story you’re working on. Here is one I highly recommend. It’s run by two people who have told many times at FGS and other shows in the area: 

I’m also happy to help anyone on a story. Send me an email and we can set up a phone call. 

See you on November 17th at 7 pm on Zoom!
