Join 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 in 2021 will be held online via Zoom every Wednesday from April 14 to June 30, 2021. Each meeting will run in the evenings for no longer than 1.5 hours. We will be hosting a virtual “Open House” to meet all workshop applicants on Wednesday, March 31, 2021.

applications for the 2021 workshop are now closed.
