Long Story Short: “Dog and Pony Show”

longstoryshort(1)

Join us for So Say We All’s open-to-everyone storytelling show! We invite you to come and tell a 5-minute story without notes on a changing monthly theme. Doors open at 7, storytelling begins at 7:30.

This month: Ever had to plaster on the fake grin, do the little dance, and go way overboard to prove your point or get your way? We’re spending tonight talking about spectacular moments of self-compromise or any other interpretation of the theme that makes sense.

Greenroom Writers Workshop @ SDPL: “Too Good To Be True”

GreenRoom

We all want to believe that we’ve found something perfect, but usually we neglect to read the fine print. Let’s talk and write about those times when reality has shown us how delusional we really are.

This GreenRoom Writing Workshop will be a primer to help generate ideas for our September VAMP showcase “Trouble in Paradise”.

Greenroom Writers Workshop @ SDPL: “Not-So-Super Heroes”

GreenRoom

We build people up. We put them on pedestals. And then one day, we figure out they’re not as infallible, valiant, or amazing as we think. Whether we’ve caught them doing something villainous or just vulnerable, they will forever be just a fellow human to us.

Let’s explore how we make our heroes and what causes them to fall from grace. How does this change us?

GreenRoom Writing Workshop: Scapegoats

936029_10151977313091164_1615360325_n

We all know (or have been) that poor schmuck who takes the blame and puts up with the harassment for no other reason then the crowd says he has to. Let’s talk and write about those times when one person has to be the fall guy.

(Optional viewing: this GreenRoom was partially inspired by the amazing documentary “Catching Hell”, part of ESPN’s “30 For 30″ series. It’s on Netflix, runs about an hour, and is awesome.)

This GreenRoom Writing Workshop will be a primer to help generate ideas for our October VAMP showcase “Mob Rules”.

GreenRoom Writing Workshop, “None of us is as Dumb as All of us”

The Borg. Cults. Board meetings.

It seemed like a good idea at the time. You said yes. And then suddenly, there was kool-aid being passed around and you thought, “Wait a minute…”

Whether you were talked into it or realized it was happening too late, let’s explore what happens when you realize the hive mind isn’t as smart as you thought it was.

This GreenRoom Writing Workshop will be a primer to help generate ideas for our October VAMP showcase “Mob Rules”.

GreenRoom Writing Workshop: “Facing Your Fears”

GreenRoom

Nothing gets our hearts pounding quite like the moments when we face the things we fear the most. How we deal with our fears can shape our lives and define our identities.

What is the story of how you confronted fear in the past? Did your heart swell with pride when you stood tall and stared down your fear? Or did you tuck your tail between your legs and slump back into another cycle of shame and regret?

And most importantly, how do we write about it?
