Are you a teen with a story to tell?
Do you think maybe one day it would be cool to tell a story ON STAGE?
Do you want to be the one who your teachers and peers look up to?
Even if you feel scared of speaking in front of people.
Even if you feel like don’t have any good stories to tell.
Even if you think you’re a terrible storyteller.
Even if you feel shy about sharing stuff about your life.
You’ll get to be part of a crew of other brave teens to take on the stories banging around in your head and tell stories out loud to the world.
Whether it scares you or excites you, whether you know you’re an amazing storyteller or you wish you were, WE WANT YOU to join the brave teens of Boulder’s Story Slam TEEN EDITION
We’ll have a 6 week workshop to dig in to the weird, unique wonder of your life, build your confidence, find your story, and craft it into a story you’re excited to tell on stage.
You’ll learn secrets for telling great stories (yes even if you feel like a horrible storyteller).
You’ll learn how to deal with nerves and jitters when you speak.
(YIKES! Don’t worry. You’ll have a team of pals to support you every step of the way.

I can’t wait for the teen edition of Boulder’s Story Slam to take root!
