There's an amazing collection of true, live storytelling events in the San Francisco Bay Area!
Some are curated, some are open-mic story slams, some relate to a specific them - they each have a unique flavor.
The StoryFest began with the idea of collaborating with as many other regular storytelling shows in the East Bay. What if we could give the public a samplings of all the shows during the night, with story workshops and events during the day, and have a good time? It had never been done here before and it was on!
A non-profit organization, The Oakland Ed Fund, was brought in as our beneficiary. The night was a huge success with a sell out crowd and even Glynn Washington, host of NPR's Snap Judgment showed up to tell a story!
