Taught by our own Producer/Host  MINDY NETTIFEE.

If you’ve seen Humans of New York, listened to This American Life, or attended a Moth story slam, you’ve witnessed the incredible power of stories to entertain, inspire, motivate and connect us. Personal storytelling is one of the most powerful tools we have. Freeing our voices, crafting our stories, and honing our delivery can dramatically enhance our personal and professional lives.

This construction-focused online workshop will guide you through an entertaining crash course on crafting true, thematic personal stories for live delivery. Through experiential exercises, you will learn the basics of story construction for emotionally connecting with an audience and making meaning from your life experiences. You will workshop 1-2 personal stories.



story, hosting + peformance services

Toastmasters and self-help have taken you as far as you can go. Let the Producers + Hosts of Back Fence PDX, B. Frayn Masters + Mindy Nettifee, take you where you need to go next.

Your ability to manifest your dreams and realize your purpose; to be and express your best self; and to not sweat and panic and dread your life so much along the way - that's what's on the line.

It's time to get real with real help, and we've got you. 

Free Delivery offers expert personal coaching from coaches you will actually look forward to spending time with. We also work with businesses and organizations, and offer sought-after custom workshops; impossibly good event emceeing; and internal research and intervention services for departments and teams who are stuck for mysterious (and some obvious) reasons.

We know a lot of coaching and workshops are a big waste of time. We've been there, and it doesn't have to be that way. Let us put our years of experience to work for you - we have expertise in personal and group psychology, creative writing and expressive arts, scripted and improvisational performance, and straight up comedy and good-times-production.
