Writ Large returns to Justice Snow’s

The Justice Snow’s storytelling series, Writ Large, will return to the barroom today with true tales from locals including Todd Hartley, Meredith Daniels, A.J. Hobbs, Patrick Curry, Illene Pevec and Soma Hunter.

A collaboration between Justice Snow’s and the Isaacson School for New Media’s Digital Story Lab at Colorado Mountain College, the program is scheduled to begin at 5 p.m. Admission is $10.

Launched in early 2015 and running bimonthly, Writ Large aims to give novice local participants a chance to practice nonfiction storytelling, learning about storycraft techniques and applying them in performances in front of a live audience. Writ Large focuses on true stories narrated by the person who had the experience. Storytellers are selected prior to the event and each is offered an opportunity to get pointers and tips to make their stories more compelling.

“We have pivotal stories from our community,” curator Alya Howe said of today’s program in an announcement. “One that asks ‘What if you knew with absolute certainty the moment your childhood ended?,’ another about how a recent trip to India made significant changes to their very being, one about a college vacation experience to Hiroshima to see the Peace Park, and what is at the epicenter of the 1945 Atomic Bomb Blast.”

Interested storytellers are encouraged to contact Howe at alyahowe@me.com to sign up for future dates.
