DIY Stories 2008-2010
DIY Stories was as an open stage storytelling show based in Portland, Oregon. It was hosted at Someday Lounge, Camellia Lounge, Common Ground Cafe, Sydney’s Cafe, and Multnomah County Library.
DIY Stories was written about in The Portland Tribune, The Oregonian, and The Portland Mercury. The show was recorded for the Destination DIY radio show on KBOO radio, and it was featured as part of the annual Tapestry of Tales Storytelling Festival at Multnomah County Library.
After running the show for two years, I morphed DIY Stories from a live storytelling event into a series of storytelling workshops that were held at Sydney’s Cafe, Vibrant Studios, and Zimmerman Community Center. Topics included performance storytelling, web coding, and social media.
DIY Stories is no longer active, but it might return in the future.
