The Storytelling Project - Winter 2023

SAY: The Stuttering Association for the Young


The Confident Voices Winter Storytelling Project is a 9-week program for kids & teens who stutter (ages 8-18) in NYC, the Tri-state area & beyond!

Each week, we will offer:
Online Program: Three online sessions available
In-Person Program***: One in-person session available, held at SAY’s midtown offices, 247 West 37th Street, 5th floor (SAY’s offices have moved and we are now located at 333 West 39th Street, Suite 604).

About the Storytelling Project:

Back by popular demand, our Storytelling Project will offer participants the opportunity to explore a wide range of storytelling forms. Playing with acting, improv, and creative writing (to name only a few!) participants will work together to build stories that matter to them and practice sharing them in a way that feels impactful, fun and exciting. As always, we will be guided by our amazing staff of Teaching Artists, who have expertise in a variety of storytelling methods.

Over the course of 9 weeks, participants will be invited to give voice to their ideas, take part in great conversations, build community, and have fun! At the end of the Project, participants have the option to present their creations in front of a warm, safe and supportive audience (if they choose to). The program will be led by Confident Voices co-Directors Kate Detrick and Aidan Sank.

This program is offered free of charge. Winter 2023 Session dates are listed below. Click one of the buttons below to register for the Online or In-Person program sessions today!

Please know, as is true in all of our programs, NO experience with storytelling or acting is necessary. We will be taking an instinctive, step-by-step approach, emphasizing self-expression and empowerment. All sessions will be structured around each individuals’ needs. We strongly believe that in any art form, there is always something for everyone.

At SAY, everyone has as much time as they need to speak. Participants are encouraged to be confident in their unique and powerful voices, and to express themselves freely in a fun environment where it is really, really ok to stutter.

*** Enrollment for the Confident Voices: NYC In-Person Storytelling Project will be offered at a limited capacity due to Covid-19 precautions, and spots will be offered on a first come, first served basis. Once we have reached our in-person enrollment capacity, all other interested participants will be invited to join our online session.
