Beyond Borders Storytelling

Stories for Wanderlusting Adventurers.

Aug 14 Fish Out of Water
Story Jam
Join Us on Stage

Calling all outcasts, vagabonds, newbies, misfits and more! We're looking for stories about times when you felt out of your element. Maybe you were "the diversity" in a small backwater town. Or you switched from a career in investment banking to one in pole dancing. Or how about that time you showed up at a Victorian costume party, but you dressed for a "Victorian underwear party"?

Think you have your own Fish Out of Water story you want to tell at our Aug 14Story Jam? Don't be shy! Pitch us your fabulous idea here.  The only requirements are that it must be under 10 minutes, must be true and about you.

Never told a story? Never fear! We give all our storytellers a ton of support through practices and coaching. By the time you get on stage you won't feel like a Fish Out of Water. You will feel ready to tell a great story!
