Develop compelling personal monologues as a way to clear space for more impactful leadership.
Guided by TMI Project workshop leaders Hayley Downs and Dara Lurie, we explore significant experiences in a new light. By writing about them boldly as compelling personal monologues, we take back our power and clear space for more impactful leadership.
In a safe space for women, we use writing prompts and exercises to help us write from our whole selves—including the TMI (Too Much Information) parts that are usually left out because of pain or embarrassment.
Through sharing stories and feedback, we:
Release stigma to feel unburdened and empowered by our stories
Gain confidence writing a true story without concern for grammar or punctuation
Strengthen our ability to be effectively heard and practice speaking in front of others
Learn to elicit listener identification and understanding, and inspire social change

Free and open to anyone who has experienced housing insecurity or homelessness.
Housing is a human right. Share your story to illuminate issues associated with the housing crisis, inspire people to take action and to create true change in your local community and beyond.
If you’ve experienced housing insecurity or homelessness and are interested in sharing your story, please join us for a TMI Project True Storytelling Open House Workshop. This is an opportunity to experience a taste of a TMI Project True Storytelling Workshop, and learn more about participating in The Housing Stories, a full workshop and performance series, which will culminate in a live performance on January 11th, 2020 in Kingston, NY. Participants will leave the workshop with well-crafted stories to share at community rallies and forums.
