Write about, share, and connect around your experiences during the COVID-19 pandemic with TMI Project at this drop-in true storytelling workshop series. True storytelling is a vehicle for human connection and can ignite hope during the darkest of times. We're offering this safe and welcoming space to help you tell your story and stay connected even if we can’t be in the same room with each other.
All participants are invited to submit a story of up to 1000 words to TMI Project’s open call for Covid-19 stories (attendance is not required to submit a story). We’re seeking stories about hope, resilience, loss, loneliness, silver linings, and the unexpected gifts you’ve received or losses you’ve grieved during the COVID-19 pandemic. We will select a small group of storytellers to further develop their stories with TMI Project’s Co-founder and Workshop Leader Eva Tenuto, which will be curated into a live storytelling performance taking place on November 30th.
TMI Project workshops help writers identify the “too-much-information” parts of their stories, the parts they usually leave out because they’re too ashamed or embarrassed. We lead writers through a creative process that allows them to share their most personal stories in a compelling, effective, and empowering narrative. We aim to incite positive social change by providing writers with the skills needed to be captivating live storytellers, and by amplifying the voices of populations whose stories often go unheard.
EVA TENUTO is the co-founder and executive director of TMI Project. Since 2010, she has brought TMI Project from her living room to a host of performance spaces, schools, detention centers, mental health facilities and the United Nations. Eva is the editor and director of multiple solo shows, one of which was awarded Best Comedic Script of 2014 in the United Solo Festival. In 2018, her directorial film debut, Vicarious Resilience, a docu short, celebrated its world premiere at The Woodstock Film Festival. Eva’s own true stories have been published on Longreads.com and in numerous anthologies including Drinking Diaries, Goodbye to All That and others. Eva studied acting at American Academy of Dramatic Arts. She received a BA in Fine Art and Women’s Studies and an MA in Elementary Education, both from Hunter College. More at www.evatenuto.com.
