October 2018

Saturday, October 13
Ignite Talks Writing Workshop - 10/13 - Missoula, Montana
9:00 AM
824 Stoddard St, Missoula, MT
What could you speak PASSIONATELY about for 5 minutes in front of others?

It's a simple question, really, but one that we have been exploring at our "Potluck of the Minds" meet-ups in Missoula MT this last year.

But this is different. Here is where we brainstorm about what we could speak passionately about, explore how to share that with an audience and learn how to construct a solid 5 minute "elevator pitch" with power.

The lineup:

9-9:15am: get your coffee and tea at our house(drinks provided but please bring favorite mug or cup) & introductions

9:15-9:45: Learn how to explore, structure and write an ignite talk. Get pointers on how to deep dive on a topic you already know well. This structure lends itself to many areas and you are welcome to explore ANY topic. "The diversity of topics drives the conversation..." -Ed. From a standup comedy routine, a vlog, employee review pitch to your boss, wedding speeches, a hard letter to a loved one, or your obsession of how to peal(and NOT PEAL) a banana -> https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bON296SdRs8.

9:45-10:45: WRITE. refill on coffee. sit on our stoop and listen to birds. ask questions. but most of all this is a space and time to explore whatever topic you chose. Bring your favorite journal, scrap papers, laptop. We will also have supplies if you forgot your own.

10:45-11:15 Wrap up. We encourage a trial run here of notes, to get you comfortable standing on your legs in front of others and saying what you are passionate about. Is it scary? yes. and feel comforted that everyone else is probably scared too ;) If you want to do a full 5 minute trial, HELL YEA! The more you put into this, the more you will get out.

This is a FREE event. We want to support community members in Missoula. Hope to see you there! Please RSVP so we know how much coffee to get :)

We also would love to see you at our next Potluck of the Minds! Event launching soon, but here is our last one -> https://www.meetup.com/Montana-Programmers/events/249427897/
