What is StoryBooth?
is a space dedicated to helping young people in Memphis (aged 10-18) develop their own voices through creative and expository writing and other free project-based art workshops. StoryBooth is also the dedicated venue for all literary programming of Crosstown Arts and hopes increasingly to serve as a hub to foster community among writers in Memphis, and to make creative connections between readers and writers.
