Apply to The X Page: A Storytelling Workshop!

Do you have a story to tell? The X Page Workshop pairs you with professional writers and performers to tell your story in your own voice. One evening a week, you and a small group of women will work to create a personal narrative with novelist Tasneem Jamal and director Pam Patel. Tasneem will help you shape your story into a short, written memoir. Pam will help you to perform your story at the end of the workshop.

You will be paid $200 to publish and perform your story.
The workshop is free to attend.
No writing or performing experience necessary!

keep in mind:

The workshop is equally a writing workshop and a performance workshop. Workshop meetings will be held in person from May 5 to July 20, 2022 from 6:00-8:00pm. Please note that the first meeting will take place on Thursday, May 5 while every other meeting from May 11 to July 20 will take place on Wednesday evenings. We will be hosting an in-person “Open House” from 6:00-8:00pm Wednesday, April 20, 2022 to meet all workshop applicants.
