Review for SpeakeasyDC, Washington, DC, USA
SpeakeasyDC rocked my world. I was loosely calling myself a creative writer, with no aspirations to get up in front of a room full of people (thought of it made my stomach turn inside out and all pores commence sweating), when I signed up for Storytelling 101 in order to improve my writing skills.
The curriculum and instructors taught me how to not only relay my stories to connect with an audience better and evoke emotion, suspense, excitement, etc...they also taught me, through baby steps, how to have the confidence to get up in front of people and share, overcoming, at least in the moment, the insane nerves and nausea.
Beyond that, SpeakeasyDC has brought new supportive/funny/interesting friends into my life and welcomed me into a new community.
I enjoyed the class and continue to enjoy the salons and performances, as well as the improvement in my writing and public speaking.
