Mar 3 Storytelling Workshop
We all have stories to tell. That’s the Third Goal of Peace Corps, to share with people back home the experiences from our service overseas. Beyond Borders Storytelling is hosting a storytelling workshop to help people turn those experiences into engaging stories. The workshop is open to anyone who has a story with an international twist, not just Returned Peace Corps Volunteers.
This workshop is perfect for those wanting to go that next step and perform before a live audience at the Story Jam in April.
Workshop is FREE to all. Pizza will be provided. Details and RSVP Info Here>>
