HOW I LEARNED is a live series featuring writers, storytellers, comedians, bloggers, and other raconteurs holding forth on lessons learned, unlearned, relearned -- or in process. It all happens once a month, and sometimes more than that, which just basically means you will have the best night of your life on those nights repeatedly.
BLAISE ALLYSEN KEARSLEY is a writer and storyteller as well as the creator, producer, and host of The How I Learned Series, and she also does some other stuff, too. She's appeared on The Rejection Show, The Liar Show, The Soundtrack Series, The Story Collider, Steamboat, Mortified, Cringe, and Literary Death Match, among others. Her writing was published in several places, a long time ago, that are perhaps not worth mentioning by name right now. One time, she was awarded a writing fellowship in Vermont where she got electrocuted and maybe almost killed a horse. Visit her at your own risk at bazima.com.
