Storytelling Bootcamp

In this one-day intensive class, you can bring an existing story to shape and evolve or find a new story from the long road of your life. We will discuss definitions of "story" and how to discover them, as well as rules to follow and rules to break. Turn your anecdote of "this thing that happened to me" into a story of "this experience and decision within the context of my life."

The Rumpus: (

"If any of you were at my Brooklyn OCEAN AT THE END OF THE LANE event, or at any of the Heart Shaped Tour storytelling gigs, Peter was the MC. He was the big one you probably fell in love with because he has a heart the size of the world." - Neil Gaiman
