Combining that experience with the Ex Fabula storytelling will create a particularly personal and unique experience for the participants,” Maggie Kuhn Jacobus, owner MKJ Communications and Sculpture Milwaukee committee co-chair.
Our tour will feature stories from Elaine Maly and Shawn Mitchell, plus you’ll be able to submit your own UltraShort via social media.

We’re prepping for a new season and we need YOU to help pick us themes for Season 10 StorySlams.

Ex Fabula is growing again!
For Season 10, we want everyone in the region to know about the many opportunities to connect with others over true, personal stories – so we’re hiring a Marketing & Communications Associate. Please spread the word and help us find our next fabulous team member!
7/20/18 update: We’ve received lots of applications from qualified candidates and are reviewing them, so at this time, we’re no longer accepting additional applications.
If there’s one thing Ex Fabula has brought to the Milwaukee community over the past nine seasons, it’s connections. Stories are the connective tissue that hold our families, neighborhoods, and communities together. So there was no more fitting theme for the Season 9 ALL STARS event than “Connection.”
We’re headed back to Turner Hall, Friday May 18th 2018 to present Season 9 ALL STARS. It’s our Season ender featuring this Season’s winners from previous StorySlams. This year’s ALL STARS will feature 7 amazing community members telling their true, personal stories.
