Sacred Fools presents NAKED Storytelling! Warning: Writers will expose themselves. In this monthly Zoom storytelling event hosted by Joe Hernandez-Kolski, writers share intimate, truthful tales from their own experience based on a monthly theme. Price of admission? A donation that will be split between Sacred Fools and a rotation of other Los Angeles theatre companies.
Interested in getting "Naked" with us? We are currently accepting submissions for storytellers! Our first month will be a "free-for-all" theme-wise, so anything goes. The only requirements to submit are that the story must be honest, from your own personal experience (no telling your great Nana's story), and that it have a beginning, middle, and end. If you are a first-time storyteller and would like guidance, we have a story coach who can help you shape your tale and help you find your voice.
SUBMISSION FORM (All ethniticies encouraged!)
