Have you ever needed to simply “move on” to a new project, home, relationship, or way of being? This month SHINE explores stories about MOVING ON—life transitions and the aha moments that lead to change.
SHINE is a monthly storytelling series featuring professionals and amateurs coming together on the third Thursday of every month to share inspiring true stories. Participants and audience members enjoy a relaxed community feeling, powerful and entertaining stories, live music, refreshments and mingling.
Professionals are chosen from some of the nation’s top award-winning storytellers and writers. Amateur storytellers of all ages and walks of life also take the stage. Submissions are accepted before the event and two slots are reserved for audience members selected through a random drawing. A new theme is announced each month.
Live music for this month’s SHINE will be provide by Mary Lou Newmark, an electric violinist, composer, and poet.
Those interested in becoming a SHINE Storyteller are encouraged to visit www.StoriesBloom.com in advance for details on monthly theme, guidelines and submissions.
SHINE is produced by Jen Bloom and Isabel Storey and presented by Santa Monica Repertory Theater, Storey Productions, UCLArts and Healing, and the YWCA Women’s Partnership
