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

Join us for stories about being thiiiis close: The time the team nearly won the championship. A brush with fame. One number away from the super mega lottery. Almost catching the train. Or what it's like to be a straight B student. 

Do you have a personal story to share? We want to hear it! Pitch it 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:
