[12/21/19]   Attleborro #storyslams are a go,details coming up!

[12/17/19]   Tip! When choosing a story you want to tell, make sure it is your own story , something that happened to you and you can tell in the first person. Are you connected to your story emotionally ? In other words, when you invite people to listen to your story, remember how you felt at the time when it happened to you and bring some of that emotion with you when you tell it. Emotions are universal, people may not have had the same experience you had but they certainly can understand the way you felt at the time.

Next story slam is January 19, 5:30 and the them is Story Slam Red Flag Turtle Swamp Brewing in Jamaica Plain.

[12/14/19]   Stay Tuned for a possible new series of slams on the South Coast. Attleborro area. Details coming!

Stories from the Stage

Annemarie created this story in a Recovery Storytelling workshop at South Shore Peer Recovery back in 2018. She took Andrea Lovett's and Meghann Perry's workshop two more times, and her gift and love for storytelling has continued to grow as she uses her skills in advocacy work as the parent of a person with substance use disorder. She has become a powerful, skillful storyteller, even making it onto WGBH's Stories from the Stage! Listen to her amazing story below.

Sometimes we’d rather avoid stepping into the fray. But when we choose to be courageous, the consequences are life changing. Annemarie Mullan Whilton discovers that letting go is not the same as giving up.

Red Flag Story Slam coming up in January 19,5:30PM, Turtle Swamp Brewing. Red Flag... as in when you go on a tinder date and you lay your eyes on your date for the first time and .... they are not like the picture... at all. Or the dog you you volunteered to dog sit for seems to have no training ...including house training. What's your red flag story? Those moments when the universe is telling you to take a second look at your choices. LOL
