We Are The Weirdos is a live, open-mic style, storytelling series focused on giving woman identifying humans a platform to speak about their experiences. We believe it is time to amplify the voices of women, and so our platform was born. Our hope is that We are the Weirdos inspires a community where the stories of the woman-souled are shared and truly heard, creating change in this crazy world.
Q: Can I tell a story?
A: Anyone of our guests are welcome to sign up to tell a story. When signups open, you fill out a slip with your name and it's placed into a hat to be pulled at random.
Q: Do I need to be a professional storyteller?
A: Nope! We encourage our friends to try new things! We just ask that you keep it under five minutes. If you have any questions on how to develop your story, feel free to e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org
Q: What kind of women share?
A: We encourage women from all walks of life. Storytelling isn't limited to one group of people and we intend to keep this an open platform.
Q: What kind of stories do people share?
A: Anything! Stories range from hilarious to beautiful to heartbreaking. There is no theme.
Q: Can I use notes?
A: We do allow the use of notes on stage, however we ask that you limit the use. Live storytelling is exciting because it's.. well.. LIVE! Please refrain from reading essays or directly off of your phone.
(TIP:) Try and practice your story from memory before the show, it really helps. Perhaps try recording a practice run on your phone. The more you tell it from memory, the better you will get. You can do it, we believe in you!
Q: Can only women attend?
A: We welcome an audience of any gender! We would love your support!
