Little Box of Yes

Little Box of Yes

Jun 02, 2019, 10:30 AM - 11:05 AM

Choice Stage

Join several authors for improvisational storytelling based on Synapsis, a new storytelling prompt and game from Storymatic Studios.

Here’s how it works: The authors will draw cards from the Synapsis box. The cards prompt them to write one sentence, which they will imagine comes from a certain kind of story. Then they answer questions about the story that sentence comes from— and as they improvise their answers, they begin to discover the story, setting, and characters. Audience participation welcome!

A Little Box of Yes is kind of like if you crossed “Selected Shorts” with “Wait, Wait… Don’t Tell Me” and The Moth. It has been presented at PEN America’s Lit Crawl NYC and the Brattleboro Literary Festival, and it will come to the Boston Lit Crawl right after BookCon.

Authors to be announced shortly.
