Join Randy & Phil to Tell Your own Stories

Big Body Stories

Small groups where everyone gets a turn to tell a story
Randy Newswanger and Phil Porter


Various times • See link to dates below

Check out new dates & times for January & February 2021 here!

InterPlay leader and storyteller Randy Newswanger and InterPlay Co-Founder Phil Porter are creating opportunities for InterPlayers to tell Big Body Stories and DT3s online. Each session, offered at a variety of times and days, will be limited to five other participants. Each person will have 5 minutes to tell a story to the whole group.

We will also be spending some time warming up and telling stories back and forth with a partner in breakout rooms. The bulk of the time, however, will be to devoted to individual stories. Although we won't be focusing on storytelling technique, we're finding that we are all learning from each other as we tell stories.

This class is intended for InterPlayers who are already familiar with these more advanced forms. We will not be reviewing the incremental steps that lead to them. If you're ready to dive in, though, regardless of your level of experience, please join us!

The sessions last an hour and a half.

Participants must sign up in advance for a slot using this SignUpGenius registration process. The class fee is $20-30 sliding scale. You may use several slots on a multiple-class card if you choose.

Pay in advance online using PayPal or a credit card.
