Calling RPWF Storytellers for our December Program!  

 

RPWF is made up of incredibly talented women—women with both professional and personal life experiences that have changed them.  We know you have lots of stories to share, and our December program will give you an opportunity to do just that!   

 

Our December program will focus on stories—your stories of your holiday traditions, experiences, challenges, or memories—and our storytellers will be you!    We invite you to tell your holiday story at our December 14 program. 

 

You don’t have to be a professional storyteller— but if you are or you'd just like to hone your storytelling skills, here's your chance— just share your 6-10 minute holiday story.   How you approach the theme is up to you—your story can be humorous, moving, or suspenseful—but most of all it must be true!   

 

All you have to do is fill out the application form and send it to Ann Lassiter at aclassiter@sbcglobal.net by November 1.  The RPWF board will select stories from the applications to pitch their story at the November board meeting.  We’ll select 3-4 stories to be shared at the December program.     

 

These are the guidelines: 

  • Stories must be about the holidays, be true, and mostly about you.
  • Stories are all about change—changing how you think, act, or what you do.
  • Be sure to set the stage early—who, what, where, when. Identify the conflict or problem and how it was resolved. You must tell your story—no notes!
  • Stories should be between 6 and 10 minutes long.
  • The story must not teach, promote, sell, advocate, or call people to action.
  • Stories aren’t talks.
  • Want some tips on telling your story?
