Rye resident Pat Spalding of WSCA True Tales Radio is conducting a series of workshops at Rye Public Library on Wednesdays January 7, 14, and 21st all at 6:30pm, then emceeing a storytelling performance at the Library on Thursday January 29th at 7pm. Have you enjoyed WSCA True Tales Radio or the Moth Radio Hour on NPR? Ever wanted to hone your storytelling chops? The RPL True Tales Radio Boot Camp is for you!
The workshops, designed for adults and high school students, will assist participants in crafting a first-person experience story into a piece, eight minutes or less in length, that can be effectively told on the radio or at other venues featuring the spoken word.
Interested individuals should sign up for the program at Rye Public Library and begin to consider a story they’d like to develop during the workshops. Themes for the 2015 True Tales Radio series will be available, so stories can be crafted with the idea of participating in next year’s radio program. To fit the True Tales Radio format, stories should be something that you have personally experienced, not a story about someone else, unless you were actually there when it happened. You should share your personal experience…your emotions…that is why your story has to be truly yours. Sign up now by visiting RPL or calling 964-8401
