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 a group of professional editors and director Pam Patel. Our team of professional editors 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 March 27 to June 12, 2024 from 6:00-9:00pm. The dress rehearsal and performance will be held during the weekend of June 14-15, 2024 . We will be hosting an in-person “Open House” from 6:00-8:00pm Wednesday, March 6, 2024 to meet all workshop applicants.

Applications for the 2024 workshop are now closed.
