Fugitive Stories continues its special brand of non-competitive storytelling at Kickstand Cafe in Arlington. We bring Moth and Massmouth winners, along with others from the local community, to share their stories. Do you want to tell your story on our theme? Sign up Kickstand or fill out our form online. We'll get back to you to let you know if you're in. We also invite audience members who are interested in telling a five- to sex-minute story on our theme to drop their name in a hat. If chosen, they’ll tell their tale.
August Theme: “Time Out”
Don't you just need a break sometimes? Do you know when to stop for a moment in the middle of an argument? What do you do for fun? When was the last time someone tickled you so long and hard that it hurt?
Rose won two Moth StorySLAMs and two Massmouth Story Slams in 2016, her first year as a storyteller. She has been a featured teller at WGBH, The Life is Good Kids Foundation, and The International Institute of Boston. She placed third in Boston’s 2017 Moth Grand Slam. She teaches “True Stories Told Live” workshops As a newcomer to the craft, Rose gets energized finding that common bond with an audience, but practices relaxation breathing to stop shaking before every event. Rose was one of the co-founders of Fugitive Stories.
Professional storyspinner, published writer, performance instructor, host, and TedX Coach, Brendyn is a Boston-based storyteller who’s been featured at WGBH Studios, Emerson College, Coolidge Corner Theater, Somerville Theatre, and other action-packed venues across New England.

A Fugitive Stories veteran, Brendyn takes his audiences on story-trips of wit through the follies of growing up and the everyday slog.
