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.
January’s Theme: “Not Sorry”

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.
