Listening to stories builds connections between people. It is the antidote to loneliness.
True personal stories bring us into each other's worlds. Through stories, we understand ourselves and each other in new and different ways.
Stories reward us with drama and laughter. Stories can connect with our deepest feelings and know we aren't alone.
Enjoy an evening of true stories told by the people who lived them.

Date: September 21 - 22

(Saturday & Sunday)

Time: 10:00 AM - 4:00 PM

Location: Vancouver Odd Fellows, 1443 West 8th Avenue Vancouver

Everyone has a story to tell. We've all had experiences that scared, delighted and changed us. We've made bad decisions, gotten out of scrapes, and loved so deeply it hurt. Most of us haven't learned how to craft our experiences into compelling stories. 

Over two creative and fun-filled days, award-winning actor, writer and director and Artistic Producer of The Flame, Deb Williams, will teach you the tools to turn your lived experience into an engaging tale—or the genesis of a one-person show. Your life is story-worthy! Come learn how to tell the story only you can tell. 

Some of the workshop participants will be invited to share their stories at a live storytelling event immediately following the workshop from 6:30 to 9:30  p.m. on Sunday, October 28. Your ticket price includes 12 hours of instruction time, fresh, healthy lunches and snacks, tea and coffee, and a complimentary ticket to the live storytelling event following the workshop. 
Your ticket purchase will also help fund scholarships for clients of the Three Links Free Sunday Breakfasts, which are held weekly at the Odd Fellows Hall.

All funds over and above expenses will be donated to the Vancouver Writers Festival.
