Get Involved

Open Meeting

There are lots of exciting ways for undergraduates to get involved with the Stanford Storytelling Project. You’ll find some options below. 

  • Every Friday afternoon we get together in shared admiration for great storytelling. Over tasty treats we listen to and explore the craft of one great story, often selected by a student from a favorite podcast.  We also welcome new students and share how to get involved in our workshops, events, and especially our podcasts State of the Human and Off the PageOpen meeting is on Fridays from 1:30-2:30 in room 127 of Wallenberg (Building 160).
