About The Event

Fail Better Storytime is home to live-storytellers, new or seasoned, looking to experiment with ANY 8 mins (or less) true story, no matter where it might be in its development. Unfinished stories are especially welcomed- the messier the better.

Trying to find a clear beginning, middle and/or end? Have too much/not enough narrative summary, scenes or those awful and wonderful things called feelings? No matter! Workout any and all of this at Fail Better Storytime.

In fostering an accessible space for all new works, we do not vet any of the stories and have no idea what they will tone and content will vary, fair warning.

​We Offer

*A stage

*8ish mins

*A supportive audience of fellow storytellers also at the ready with their own stories to destigmatize failure and embrace productive mistakes with you.

Optional  Resources:

*Notes for reference are welcomed.

*Free video recording for future edits of your story or to pitch to another show.

*Story Status - Before telling, share with us the current development stage of your story. For example, tell us you have no ending and you wanna see if one comes up as you tell. Or tell us it's a revisited story and you're trying out a new approach.

*Popcorn - A quick one word or sentence reaction from everyone in the room to gauge initial/visceral responses.

*Little extra time - Depending on the size of the lineup, occasional opportunities for more time may be available. Perhaps you need to prep for an upcoming longer set at another show (like RISK!) or your own one person show. Email us for more details. 

CLICK HERE and scroll to our submission form to reserve a spot for this month or a future show and find out how we can best develop your story. First come, first serve! No vetting!

Show is FREE and open to the public.

Hosted by Christopher Moncayo-Torres
