The 2020 story theme is “Climate of Love”:
Have you ever fallen in love with a place — the same way you can fall in love with a person — and seen it change before your eyes? Maybe because of climate change? What happened next? We invite you to bring stories of your love affair with the planet: journeys through environmental romance, connection, learning, loss, intimacy, regeneration, activism.
In this masterclass, you will develop a seven-minute “Climate of Love” story in a structured, supportive environment during Roaring Stories’ LIVE WORKSHOP held on Zoom, weekly on Thursdays, 10:30am to noon, from August 6 through 27. Sessions will also be recorded for asynchronous learning on your own schedule.
You will also have the chance to share your “Climate of Love” story at the Roaring Stories LIVE PERFORMANCE from 6 to 7:30pm on September 16 (stream last year’s stories here). Performers will receive the full $120 tuition back in gifts from the sponsoring organizations as a reward for sharing your experience!
$120 tuition includes 6 hours of group instruction, curriculum, private Facebook group learning space, and the opportunity to share a story at the live event. For those who go on to perform their story on stage, Alya will guide storytellers with one-on-one mentoring and performance coaching. Scholarships are available. Please apply; no one will be turned away for economic reasons.
