11:30am — 12:30pm
Typewriter Tarot — "Tarot and the Story of YOU" Workshop
Tarot cards might seem spooky or kooky, but people have been using them for centuries to tell stories about their own lives. In this creat...ive session for humans of all ages, you’ll get a super-quick introduction to Tarot by Cecily Sailer, the founder of Typewriter Tarot. Then we'll all pick out a Tarot card to inspire a short, mystical, and insightful writing activity about our own experience.

12:30pm — 1:30pm
Austin Bat Cave — Anthology Readings
Join Austin Bat Cave as they celebrate their tenth anthology release! Excerpts of their latest anthology will be read aloud for all to enjoy.

1:30pm — 2:30pm
Testify — "Three Sentence Stories" Workshop
What makes a story? A beginning, middle and end! Often we think a story needs to be long, when in reality it can be told in as little as three sentences. In this interactive workshop, the producers of Testify — a local storytelling show — will talk about the basic elements of stories, and lead you through making your own three sentence stories to tell out loud.

2pm — 6pm
Story Bar — Black Out Poetry
Grab a sharpie and give black out poetry a try! Story Bar will show you how to create poetry through an already established set of words. You can also learn about all of the amazing programs Story Bar hosts throughout the year!
