So how exactly does this work? It’s like this:
Our Back Fence Storytelling event is the kissing cousin to San Francisco’s Porchlight Storytelling Series. It is an evening with seven people telling true, unmemorized ten-minute stories based on the month’s theme. The stories must not have been performed publicly prior to their Back Fence PDX telling.
At Your Service is the theme of the May show, and story tellers include Steve Almond, author of Rock and Roll Will Save Your Life; Eric Spitznagel, whose writing has appeared in Vanity Fair and Playboy; and Jillian Lauren, author of Some Girls: My Life in a Harem (who I had the privilege of interviewing for this blog).
