Event Description:

The stories presented at Lip Service – Miami’s showcase for true stories presented out loud – are personal, heartfelt, and honest. This seven-week course, taught by Lip Service co-producers Esther Martinez and Nicholas Garnett, will show students how to identify, create, and present meaningful personal stories. Each will have the opportunity to present a final, edited story in front of their classmates and instructors. Participants will receive valuable feedback at each phase of the process, from story inception to final presentation.
