Beyond Borders Storytelling

Stories for Wanderlusting Adventurers.

Beyond Borders Storytelling was founded by three returned Peace Corps Volunteers to share stories about living overseas and crossing cultures at home. We believe everyone has a story so we provide coaching, run workshops and host story jams to help anyone develop and tell great stories.

Eventbrite - Beyond Borders Storytelling Workshop

Stories about things that haunt us. Apparitions real and imagined. People who left us, and then returned. A phantom sensation after losing a limb. Unexplained phenomena, nagging memories, or mistakes we've made. Join us on Oct 16 as we call in the spirits for our Ghosts Story Jam!

Do you have a personal story to share? We want to hear it! Pitch it to us here. Stories must be true and based on your own experiences.  

Presented in partnership with the fantastic, fun folks at Hostelling International USA. Check them out at: http://www.norcalhostels.org
