Alone Together: Storytelling in the time of Covid-19
Monday Evenings January 4-25, 7 PM
Write about, share, and connect around your experiences during the COVID-19 pandemic with TMI Project at this drop-in true storytelling workshop series. True storytelling is a vehicle for human connection and can ignite hope during the darkest of times. We're offering this safe and welcoming space to help you tell your story and stay connected even if we can’t be in the same room with each other.
About TMI Project Workshops
TMI Project workshops help writers identify the “too-much-information” parts of their stories, the parts they usually leave out because they’re too ashamed or embarrassed. We lead writers through a creative process that allows them to share their most personal stories in a compelling, effective, and empowering narrative. We aim to incite positive social change by providing writers with the skills needed to be captivating live storytellers, and by amplifying the voices of populations whose stories often go unheard.
