Ex Fabula events strengthen community bonds by creating spaces in the Greater Milwaukee area where people can connect over true, personal stories. No props, no notes – just the elements of “Story. Stage. You”. At monthly StorySlams, you can come just to listen – or, if you have a story that fits the night’s theme, throw your name in the hat for a chance to take the stage. At public workshops led by our experienced storytelling coaches, you can discover, structure, and share your stories in a friendly, small group setting. Dates and more information available at
