Do stories have to be true?
Yes! All stories told through Verse in Prose are personal and true. That's the power of the event! Whether the story makes us laugh, cry, annoyed, or pensive, we encourage storytellers to be vulnerable in sharing the truth of their experiences as they experienced it.
How long should stories be?
The best stories are told in 15 minutes or less, but think more along the lines of what is the perfect amount of detail you can share without overwhelming the audience. Whether it take 6 minutes or 16, it all works out in the end!
Ack! I'm nervous, will you help me?
All storytellers are given one-on-one coaching on their story, and will also go through a rehearsal before the event. If you are nervous at any point, you are welcome to pull out of the event (with enough notice, of course!)
