At SpeakeasyDC, we tell stories — true, autobiographical stories. We produce about 25 original live storytelling shows a year, and offer over a dozen classes and private coaching to those who wish to learn. Storytelling can be interpreted in many ways. At SpeakeasyDC, we define it as such:
- Storytelling is an oral art, so we share our stories in front of an audience without notes. It’s a telling, not not a reading.
- Our stories are autobiographical which means they are true, original, and first-person. It’s not fiction or folktale.
- Our stories have a narrative arc which, in a nutshell, means there are characters and a plot. It is not an essay, a series of jokes, or poetry.
