Sugar Storytelling and Salon
Second Saturdays at Headquarters Gallery hqstudio.org
Sugar is about sharing stories and sparking new stories. Discover something from listening to another’s experience and discover something in yourself.
Each featured storyteller will share a story.
This is followed by a short, playful writing exercise.
A prompt is given, inspired by the story read.
Free write, or doodle, or tell your story to partner, then share if you wish at the end of the session.

Squeaker was originally written for SF MoMA’s storytelling in the Gallery.
Squeaker doesn’t usually go to museums, would never hang out with the cute guy in her art history class. But here she is, in the gallery, trying to find a work of art for her “formal analysis,” and He is standing right next to her. Does she tell him what she really thinks of the painting, or stay mum for a shot at an actual date?
Come see new material from Second-Hand Muse, with three very different accounts of the composition of a new song. Tell It on Tuesday at The Berkeley Marsh, 2120 Allston Way, between Shattuck and Oxford. 7 pm music, 7:30 performances by me, Victoria Doggett, Michael Brown and Miriam Mills.
