YMP's "Storytelling for Change" Fellowship

We believe in the transformative power of stories.

Stories have power. The narratives we write and tell ourselves shape our lives and communities; they inspire action, bring nuance to memory and history, and help us envision a future world. YMP's "Storytelling for Change" Fellowship trains new and experienced writers, artists, activists, organizers, educators, students, and local community members in the power of crafting and telling detailed, heart-moving, and inspiring personal stories that touch upon themes of civil injustice, civil liberties, resilience, or anything similar. 

Our inaugural group of fellows will perform at the fresno soap co theater, Oct 27-28 & Nov 3-4!

Tickets available at brown paper tickets.
