It works like this: a group of us meet, start walking towards a pre-determined destination, and tell stories till we get there – like in Chaucer’s Canterbury Tales.
For much of the journey, the storytelling is not competitive. But the idea is to improve your storytelling, so you’ll be given specific exercises to try out in pairs or in larger groups – exercises that encourage you to take a few risks.
Sometimes we tell stories while we walk. Sometimes we stop for a bit.
Towards the end, you will get the chance to do some competitive storytelling. If that fills you with dread – have no fear. It’s a very mild form of competition.
It’s nice to end up with a winner.
