True-Life Storytelling

Hi! My name is Kristina and I am a PhD researcher at Loughborough University. My research is focused on True-Life Storytelling performance, the clubs around the UK and the expert-amateur performers who tell short-form personal stories.

I also host a club for true stories in Loughborough called True Life Stories. We gather every third Monday in a month at the Organ Grinder pub known for its amazing ales. Each event has a theme and we share 7 minutes, first-person true stories.
