In preparation for the evenings are workshops for people to develop personal stories- 15 minutes or so- about real events that shaped their lives in meaningful ways, led by Bob Gordon, based on his MOTH development training. Bring an idea for your story and prepare it for possible presentation at an upcoming Do Tell! Story Night.
