Welcome to Storytellers of San Diego

Open Mic

Open Mics are informal gatherings of tellers and listeners, and are an excellent opportunity for beginning storytellers to tell their first story in a non-threating environment. Experienced tellers are welcome to try new material and exchange ideas about storytelling techniques and story sources.
