Mijita (Ferry Building)
1 Ferry Bldg Marketplace #44, San Francisco
Contact:Will Spargur (will [AT] norcalpca [DOT] org)


Join us as we work with former volunteers to turn their experiences into meaningful and engaging stories. We will be using this opportunity to flesh out and practice ideas for the Feb 12th Jam as well as developing ideas for future story jams.

All stories must be drawn from your own true personal experiences. We find the best stories are told first hand. Stories are between 3-10 minutes long. There is a 10 minute time limit. In fact one of the best stories at one of our jams was the shortest.
