What an amazing year! We celebrated the 10-year anniversary of No, YOU Tell It! with three stellar shows you can still WATCH online.

  • WATCH No, YOU Tell It! “Anniversary Apart” – Kicking off our anniversary season in January, watch storytellers Chris Crowthers, Gaby Martineau, and Jenna Struble swap tales from our virtual show, “Anniversary Apart”
  • WATCH No, YOU Tell It! “What I Know”  – In celebration of March being women’s history month, storytellers developed true tales inspired by the theme “What I Know” on the page. Watch them step into each other’s life experiences on stage. Featuring: Michele Carlo, Julia Granacki, Hannah Leland, and Sheria Mattis
  • WATCH No, YOU Tell It! “Punch Up” – For our September Brooklyn Book Festival Book End Event, storytellers who write for the page and the stage developed true stories inspired by the theme “Punch Up.” Featuring: Jenn Wehrung, Aida Zilelian, Matt Storrs, and Maria Rubio. Plus, guest host Ellie Dvorkin Dunn

In November, we also launched the No, YOU Tell It! Ten-Year Anthology 2022 with the first in-person event at The Astoria Bookshop since March 2020.

If you haven’t purchased your copy, the anthology is not just a powerhouse collection but provides behind-the-scenes insights into starting and growing a literary series over a decade.

Available at The Astoria Bookshop and Amazon. The eBook has links to listen to the live performances of all the stories via the No, YOU Tell It! podcast. Buy a copy and spread the word to support ten more years!

2022 also marked the return to my memoir-writing residency with the seventh graders in New Jersey.

Plus, new in-person creative writing workshops at Sunnyside Arts
