ABOUT SPEAK UP Speak Up is a Hartford-based storytelling organization that seeks to promote the art of personal storytelling to a wide audience and build a community of storytellers in Connecticut. Speak Up brings professional and amateur storytellers to stage to share true stories from their lives. Speak Up founders and producers Matthew and Elysha Dicks work closely with storytellers to help them craft their stories for the stage and teach storytelling workshops to storytellers at all levels. Speak Up storytelling shows feature 6-8 storytellers who tell true stories from their lives on a predetermined theme. Shows showcase a blend of seasoned storytellers and people telling stories for the first time. Stories are 6-8 minutes in length. Shows are hosted by Speak Up producer Elysha Dicks, and storyteller and producer Matthew Dicks serves as one of the storytellers for the evening.
