CVMBS Civitas Community Storytelling: Creating community one story at a time.

Well-documented benefits of community storytelling include:

  • feelings of relaxation and well-being,
  • beneficial mental stimulation,
  • positive social bonds,
  • more cognitive connections, 
  • increased emotional associations,
  • and it’s fun!

If you’re interested in telling a story, it must:

  • be your own story
  • be true—no fiction!
  • have a beginning, middle, and end.
  • be told (not read from notes).
  • relate meaningfully to the theme.
  • not be a stand-up routine, rant, or essay.
