Nothing Informs Your Story Like Hearing Someone Else Perform Your Story!
No, YOU Tell It! is a nonfiction series I created in 2012 that advocates for authentic personal stories by having storytellers speak each other’s words aloud, empowering their voices on the page and stage. Our collaborative workshop process equips writers of all levels with literary tools to elevate the impact of their words.
Switching stories to embody each other’s experience in a live performance creates stronger empathetic connections for both the storytellers and audience members.
- Diversity of storytellers and storytelling styles
- Cooperation over competition
- Generating stories from the inside out to move beyond a prescriptive formula
