STNM currently has two regularly occurring monthly Story Crafting nights - one in Albuquerque at a public community space and one in Santa Fe held at members’ homes.
Story Crafting is not a storytelling class, but is a community space for trying out new stories - be it a germ of an idea, a partial story, or completed story that needs a run-through. It is a space to discuss and receive feedback on stories from those in attendance, who can range from seasoned and professional tellers to those just starting out (all with valuable perspectives for providing feedback and discussion!).
You are welcome to take notes while receiving feedback on your story or to formulate your ideas while listening to others. In order to create a safe and supportive space for all tellers, STNM requests, if you are able, that you take notes during another's story by hand. If you need to or would prefer to use a computer or other electronic device to take notes, please let the event's facilitator know when you arrive at the event and we would be happy to work with you to meet your needs.
