Tell It Like It Is - Writing Workshop w/ Micheal Foulk

Saturdays at 12:00 pm

April 20, 2019

Our lives are the stories we tell. Dramatic right? It’s true though, from the moment we are born we carry the stories of our families and our communities with us wherever we go. Storytelling is the oldest art form and knowing how to craft a good story is important and necessary if we want to create art. In this workshop with comedian and writer Micheal Foulk, you’ll take a small personal moment and transform it into a stage-ready story. From there we will begin the process of creating a longer form essay from your experience and learn about pitching ideas for publication.

This class will take place at the Fallout Theater (616 Lavaca St) on Saturday April 20th from 12pm-4pm.

Tuition for this class is $50.

This class is limited to 8 students, so reserve your spot now!
