Porch Stories at The Left Bank Studio

KHOI Porch Stories at The Left Bank Studio

Intrepid storytellers at The Left Bank Studio

This photo is from last month’s Porch Stories, a storytelling event for KHOI Community Radio which I hosted at The Left Bank Studio. My concept of Porch Stories is “conversational storytelling over a meal,” and I tried to make it relaxing. We had a lovely lasagna dinner and I talked to the participants about storyboarding and outlining to organize a story. They quickly made a few notes, then started telling 5–10 minute stories and allowed me to record them for later broadcast on KHOI. They really got into it — we went around the group, and then started telling another one! The storytellers didn’t know what they were getting into, but I think they had fun (they wrote me thank-you notes!).

Next we have to edit the recorded stories for broadcast, and they might go on the air in March.
