The Phoenix Writers Network is an exciting new community of writers who meet bimonthly to develop relationships through the exchange of knowledge about craft, publishing, and the writing life. Come join us. We'd love to meet you!
How to Tell Your Story Learn how to turn painful, strange, or even mundane life experiences into performable funny stories. We'll dig inside our own lives to find humorous, relatable material, which unifies an audience, making them laugh at their own experiences through your performance. You will leave with a strong direction of how to structure a live story while thinking, "I can't believe I told a room full of strangers about that and I can't believe they all laughed!"
