Behind the Scenes:
Hong Kong Stories
David Young will talk about the power of story and the secret to the success of Hong Kong Stories. It's more than the simple telling of true stories before a live audience. It's more than their weekly (free) workshops for storytellers and their twelve (or more) live shows per year. They help people learn how to tell great stories and give them a place to tell them. Whether you are a natural or not, Hong Kong Stories can help with that. It's better than drama. It's better than comedy. It's real life.
David will be joined by fellow storytellers and other Hong Kong Stories workshop hosts who will share their insights with WiPS members.
David Young has lived in Hong Kong for ten years. He is the co-founder and organizer of Hong Kong Stories and outgoing President of the Hong Kong Storytellers Society, the official body that runs the live shows and other events. The Hong Kong Storytellers Society invited David Sedaris to speak in Hong Kong and sponsored Story Worthy Week in 2014. Young is also the founder and coordinator of Skeptics in the Pub Hong Kong.
