Create a powerful and compelling story in this inclusive and supportive workshop.

In preparation for our upcoming Storytelling Open Mic event 2-4 p.m. on Wednesday 5/1 in Room N-451 hosted by Professor Christopher Moss and to be even selected to perform at our BMCC LIVE at PAC NYC: Storytelling Lives public performance curated/presented by Professors Brian Lorio on Wednesday 5/15 2:30-4 p.m. at Perelman Performing Arts Center, the department of Speech, Communication, and Theatre Arts is offering Storytelling Coaching Walk-In hours from 2-4 pm on 3/27, 4/3, and 4/17 in Room S-628D and via Zoom where faculty facilitators will help student, faculty, and staff storytellers develop, rehearse, and/or fine-tune their stories in a one-on-one and/or small group setting (see details below). All BMCC students, faculty, and staff are welcomed and please feel free to bring your BMCC friends, classmates, and colleagues along as well.

For the upcoming Storytelling Open Mic and BMCC LIVE at PAC NYC events, we will focus on non-fiction storytelling (stories that actually happened and the person telling it is at the center of it) with the theme of “My BMCC Journey.” We are open to all presentation formats/styles (narrative-style storytelling, poetry reading, rap, and/or spoken word performance, etc.) and are especially interested in stories that capture notable awe-inspiring, heartwarming, life-changing, thought-provoking, gratifying, and/or rewarding moments that you have personally experienced on your journey to, during, and/or after BMCC.  These notable moments may be the result of your unique personal circumstances and challenges, your interactions with certain BMCC students, faculty, staff, or alums, and/or your involvement with certain BMCC student/faculty/alum groups/organizations, support offices, scholarships, or events.
