6 Week Storytelling Classes With Lily Be

Discover Your Story

Everyone has a story to tell. EVERYONE. However, not everyone believes that they do. Not everyone is comfortable going to a  opening themselves up to a group of strangers and sharing their most vulnerable and honest stories.

I'm Lily Be, I am a momma, a nanny, a carpenter and a storyteller.

My classes are not about teaching you how to perform your stories, I am teaching you how to find them, structure them in a way that helps you make sense of your experiences so that you are able to share them with others. Be it on stage or at work or in relationships. This class isn't about performing your story, it's about getting it to make sense to you and to those around you.

Storytelling saved my life. That is not hyperbole.

Each week, we will focus on two different prompts that I created to help bring out our most significant and sometime vulnerable stories.

We will give each other feedback and constructive criticism about our stories in hopes of finding more details or questions that may reveal even deeper meaning to our experiences.

Class size will be kept to 10 to insure that everyone gets a chance to develop one 7 - 10 minute story that they can opt to share on stage at the end of the session.
