This theme of innocence can be spun several ways. The Merriam Webster Dictionary definition:
Innocence: : the state of being not guilty of a crime or other wrong act : lack of experience with the world and with the bad things that happen in life : lack of knowledge about something
We want stories about losing one's innocence. Stories about naivete. We want to hear about being accused of something you didn't do. We want to know about how your lack of knowledge led to something traumatic - but hopefully turned out okay. Don't procrastinate because this Story Slam will sell out.
CHESTER COUNTY NIGHT SCHOOL If you are intrigued by telling a story on stage, but feel you would like help crafting your story, check out our upcoming two-night Storytelling Workshop through Chester County Night School.
The workshop consists of one night of two-hour instruction on crafting a compelling story, including basic story structure and creative language. On the second night, participants will tell their five-minute story and receive feedback from instructors and peers. Jim Breslin and Terry Heyman are class instructors.
Class nights are March 19 and March 25 and the class is being held at Henderson High School in West Chester.
Space is limited.
