Jan. 27 – March 16 –
Are you a teen with a story to tell?
Do you sometimes feel like you don’t have a story to tell, but you want to find one?
Are you scared of speaking on stage but secretly (or not so secretly) wish you weren’t?
Or are you ready to take the stage and show the world you have something to say?
Whether you love it or long to love it, whether it scares you or excites you, WE WANT YOU to join the second round of Boulder’s Story Slam TEEN EDITION.
Here’s how it works:
We’ll have a 6 week workshop to have some fun, get to know each other, dig in, find your story, and craft it into a story you’re excited to tell on stage.
You’ll learn secrets for telling great stories (yes even if you feel like a horrible storyteller).
You’ll learn how to deal with nerves and jitters when you speak.
AND you’ll get to deliver your story at a public event with a real live audience. (Promise it will be mostly people who already love and adore you)
Are you in?
This one’s for 10 teens ages 13-15 who are excited to help build an ongoing teen story series.
(We’ll do one for older teens later so stay tuned)
We’ll meet on Monday afternoons at The Dairy Arts Center. January 27-March 16, 4:15-6:15pm. We’ll celebrate with a storytelling showcase open to the public on March 16 at 7pm.
Led by Johanna Walker, public speaking coach and host of Boulder’s Story Slam
ABOUT JOHANNA: I’m a public speaking coach, storytelling expert, and passionate ally for teens. I love telling stories. I love getting on stage and speaking about things I care about. I love helping other people make their stories awesome. I host Boulder’s Story Slam, and I help entrepreneurs grow their business through public speaking. I can’t wait for the teen edition of Boulder’s Story Slam to take root!
We’re asking for a sliding scale payment to help make it possible for more teens to participate. $60-120 for the 6 workshop session plus the showcase. Some scholarships are available. No one will be turned away for lack of funds. If you have the resources to pay higher on the scale, please do so to help fund a teen who doesn’t.
