Live storytelling performances tomorrow night at Egan’s

Posted by Meghan Walker on April 30th, 2012

A group of Ballard writers will take the stage again this week to tell their stories – without notes. It’s called the Ballard Writers Jam, and it’s happening at Egan’s Ballard Jam House tomorrow, Tuesday May 1, at 7 p.m.

Group member Joshua McNichols says it’s a unique experience. “The first group found this kind of performance exhilarating. It’s nothing like a traditional author event,” writes McNichols. “When the speaker doesn’t have notes, they make eye contact with the audience. They’re much more engaged. It’s like hearing a great story at a party.”

The event is put on by the Ballard Writers Collective and Secret Garden Books.
