Can Interactive Twitter Storytelling Be Sexy?

I don’t know, you tell me. This Monday I hosted an Interactive Twitter Storytelling workshop with Laneway Learning in Melbourne.

You can read the full tale on my Storify, but I will give you a teaser. What happens when a sexy dancer, two people on a date and a charismatic Iguana walk into a bar?

Interactive Storytelling with Twitter is on Storify

Laneway-Learning-Interactive-Twitter-Story-on-Storify

I have long dreamed of running an interactive Twitter storytelling event with a group of strangers in a Melbourne laneway. Last Tuesday night that dream came true.

Laneway Learning, a group of volunteers who make learning, cheap, fun and accessible, hosted the night.  The group who signed up for the evening exceeded all of my hopes as they tapped frantically on their phones, crafting a whole tale in only 30 minutes!

The group took all of the elements of a good plot, and made it better. The story begins when two people decide to meet up for drinks, a tortoise named ‘Dog’ orders a lettuce Martini and hilarity ensues.

The whole story has been uploaded on Storify for all posterity. Click here if you would like to see how it all ends!

Next week at Laneway Learning I will be leading a class using Twitter to explore the concept of interactive storytelling. The class is Tuesday the 10th of June 2014 at 8 pm. It will be possible to join the live interactions by following #LLStory.

I am very excited to see how the story unfolds and who gets involved. It is Twitter, anything is possible!

Check back next week, I will be posting the story on my Storify account!
