Another Side Porch Stories
It’s time for another Zoom episode of Side Porch Stories! The next class is Wednesday June 3 at 6:00 PM. The theme is Jeopardy.
Jeopardy—peril or danger; hazard or risk of or exposure to harm, injury, or death.
Danger can be physical, emotional, spiritual, or ? Tell us a story when you were in deep doo doo. Or thought you were.
Story must be true and about you. Tell it by heart (or as close as you can). Look for the conflict, the change in yourself, and a universal message. Keep it to 5-7 Minutes.
But first, we’ll start with a game—Jeopardy-style! I’ll give the clues and you give the answer. You’ll learn how to tell a compelling story.
