Fugitive Stories at Kickstand Cafe, Arlington

  • Kickstand Cafe 594 Massachusetts Avenue Arlington, MA, 02476 United States (map)

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 six-minute story on our theme to drop their name in a hat. If chosen, they’ll tell their tale.

April’s Theme: “Nope”

Featured Tellers

Norah Dooley

Robin Golinski
Robin founded a company where she focuses on leadership, persuasion, sales training, relationship building, and character development which led her to strengthening her communication repertoire by training in improvisation, comedy and storytelling. She is an accomplished stand-up comedian, and is founder and producer of Boston Comedy Chicks, Boston’s only all-female comedy show. Robin also founded, produces, and emcees a monthly story slam in Boston.

Amanda Goodwin
Amanda has always found great joy in connecting and caring for those around her, which is why it came as no surprise when she built a career in helping leading New England nonprofits raise funds and awareness for their causes. Currently, at The Life is Good Kids Foundation (LiGKF), Amanda shares the many stories of the Foundation’s life-changing social work. Amanda has also served as the Director of On-Air Fundraising and Marketing at the WGBH Educational Foundation — managing live and pre-produced fundraisers. When Amanda isn’t steeped in the stories of non-profits, she’s busy crafting and sharing stories of her own. She’s a published short story author, a Moth StorySLAM winner, a gratitude blogger, and the co-founder of Blind Tiger Tellers.
