This Week: Storytelling at the Chautauqua Institution

Posted on


Greetings from the beautiful Chautauqua Institution, on the shores of Lake Chautauqua in western New York. This rocking chair porch is the perfect spot to take it all in. Our hosts and their guests have spent summer evenings sharing tales on this spot for over 60 years.

We’re gearing up to teach a week-long storytelling class called “Telling the Stories of Your Life”.  The course aims to prepare students to tell true stories harvested from their own lives, just like we hear every month at Prose of Pie. At the end of the week, brave souls and members of the Chautauqua community will have a chance to share their stories publicly during a special Friday installment of the show.

If you find yourself in this part of the state and want to join us, you can find details and register through Chautauqua’s online course catalog.
