Sip-N-Scribe is a fun evening of creative writing prompts, idea swapping, and drink-sipping. The goal is to experiment with something new on the page in an informal, relaxed way, all while enjoying an evening out with your friends and making new ones.

Push away from your keyboard, get ready to put pen to paper, and come mingle with other writers in person. No one is here to write the next Great American novel. But hey, if that happens, please include us in the special thanks!
Adored working with the amazing students in Legal Outreach’s College Bound program. Swapping stories No, YOU Tell It! style this past Saturday gave participants and audience members a new perspective on what they want to shine forth with their college application essays.
Creating Sensory Details: How often have you heard this famous refrain: Show, don’t tell. But how exactly? And why? Most writers interpret it to mean that one should write vividly with detailed images and sensory information (show) rather than dull summaries (tell). Working through a series of writing exercises, we’ll explore the scientific impact sensory details have to emotionally engage readers.
4 storytellers, 3 creative team members, 2 two-hour story workshops to develop the pieces on the page, 1 personalized rehearsal session with each storyteller to help them best embody their partner’s story on stage = an unforgettable evening of No, YOU Tell It! “Snapped!” stories for a PACKED house at Dixon Place.

Happy Pride everyone!! Keep the storytelling going!
Get lit(erary) for Pride 2019 as fellows from Lambda Literary team up with my storytelling series No, YOU Tell It! for a night of queer nonfiction with a twist: Each participant develops their own true-life tale on the page and then trades scripts with a partner to present each other’s story on stage.
These four storytellers have been working with the No, YOU Tell It! creative team for the past month to turn out and trade tales inspired by the theme “Snapped!”
