Dan Hull deals in yarn-spinning. The master storyteller is arguably the architect of downtown Phoenix's storytelling scene. And he has told tales across the country — including at The Moth in New York. Lucky for Valley dwellers, Hull's easy to find around town. He hosts the aptly named Yarnball, a recurring open mic night at literary hotspot Lawn Gnome, and organizes Storyline, a series at Space 55 in which he occasionally takes the stage. Each event series is a platform for both established and emerging storytellers. Further bolstering Phoenix's storytelling scene, Hull occasionally hosts workshops for start-up raconteurs. And we've gotta give him snaps for that.
