Join 2019 QAF Grantee, "No YOU Tell It!” for the latest installment of their switched-up storytelling series!
No, YOU Tell It! is a nonfiction reading series with a twist: Each participant develops their own true-life tale on the page and then trades scripts with a partner to present each other's story on stage.
For this event the No, YOU Tell It! creative team will be working with students in Legal Outreach’s College Bound program who are in the middle of writing their personal essays for college applications. Students will be paired and partnered to swap their true-life tales (in this case, their college application essays) and after a rehearsal with a member of the NYTI team, they will perform each other's pieces for the audience including Legal Outreach students and staff members. The performances will be followed by a talk-back session.
The No, YOU Tell It! team will also provide light refreshments to add to the celebratory nature of this story swapping event.
