The Appalachian Center for the Arts, in partnership with the Appalachia Book Company and UK Extension – Pike County Fine Arts, is thrilled to introduce our new live storytelling and conversation series: Porch Talk at the App!

We all love kicking our feet up on the front porch, gathering around a roaring fire, or circling a kitchen table to talk with our friends. Porch Talk is your chance to share those stories with your community, and we know you have some good ones! Come share your stories solo or in conversation with your friends. We want to hear the generational (tall) tales you’ve collected, the monumental moments from your life, or remembrances of the people who have mattered most.

Porch Talk workshops will help you craft your personal stories into stage-worthy monologues with the help of professional editors, actors, and public speakers. These low-pressure workshops will culminate in a staged storytelling showcase and possible publication!
