Story Mining and Story Neighborhood (virtual workshops with Lily Be!)

Join us for an incredible week with master storyteller and coach, Lily Be! She’ll be leading us in two workshops on August 8 and 10! On Day 1 (Story Mining), she’ll take us on a journey to finding new stories from our own lives in what she describes as an “archeological dig for stories!” On Day 2 (Story Neighborhood), she’ll be leading us on a wild one-of-kind storytelling ride in her own invented Story Neighborhood workshop session! You can sign up for just one day or attend both!

Both workshops are virtual! Log in from anywhere!

Enrollment is a “pay what you can” sliding scale! We want everyone to attend! If you are unable to pay, please don’t let that stop you from joining. More than the money, we want your attendance. If you are able to pay, kindly do. It helps us cover the costs of bringing Lily to you. More info below!



Day 1: Story Mining Workshop
August 8 @ 6 PM PT / 9 PM ET (note your timezone!)
90 min virtual workshop

“I don’t have any good stories!”

Do you sometimes feel that you don’t have any stories to tell?  If that sounds like something you have felt, then this is the workshop for you! We all have thousands of stories just waiting to be unearthed. Come dig up your life’s stories with master storyteller and coach Lily Be. She’ll take you on a 90 min journey to uncover moments in your life worth telling and find connections among those moments. By the end of the workshop you will have new ideas for stories, learn new things about yourself, and make connections among your life’s events (and other people) along the way.





Day 2: Story Neighborhood Workshop
August 10 @ 6 PM PT / 9 PM ET (note your timezone!)
90 min virtual workshop

“Where does your story live? And who does it live near?”

This is a one-of-a-kind ride! In this 90 mins session, Lily Be will take you on a storytelling adventure to find the stories in your life that make you YOU while discovering how those stories intersect with the lives of those around you. You don’t want to miss this. You’ll uncover new stories from your life while playing an interactive storytelling game that brings you closer to your own identity and to others.
