About the Event

About Guest Henry Hanson:

Henry Hanson is a filmmaker and programmer based in Chicago. His self-produced, self-distributed directorial debut “Bros Before” screened at dozens of venues internationally while gaining notoriety as an online cult hit. They also produce and curate multimedia screening events around Chicago with an emphasis on the queer underground. He is just starting up a festival run for his debut feature “Dog Movie,” a micro-budget improvised cringe comedy inspired by Hong Sang-Soo, Larry David and Dogme 95. "Dog Movie" won Best in Filmmaking Achievement and Excellence in Acting awards from the Kansas City Underground Film Festival. Henry is the son of TNM Founder Shari Foos.

How It Works (1-hour Sessions):


  • A TNM facilitator sets up the session, including the TNM Core Concept of the week, a photo and a prompt.

WRITING: 21 Minutes

  • Along with the photo you'll get the first prompt (7 minutes to write).
  • Next, you'll get a second prompt to weave into your piece (7 minutes to write).
  • Then it is time to edit into a maximum of 1 page or 500 words (7 minutes to write).


  • After the writing, you are randomly assigned to small breakout groups with 3-4 other participants.
  • Everyone takes turns reading their piece without stopping for conversation or feedback. Simple acknowledgements such as "thank you for sharing" are welcome. While each person shares, focus on witnessing without judgement.
  • After everyone has shared, feel free to discuss your process, the concept and prompt, or share about something else that's going on with you that may be relevant to the TNM experience. Speak for yourself only and refrain from giving advice or asking probing questions.
  • NOTE: If someone in your group shares something deeply personal and may be in distress, please ask them if they are okay in this moment and don't hesitate to send a direct message to the TNM facilitator.


  • In the final minutes, the group comes together to share their thoughts about their experience, answer questions, go deeper and have fun!

 Salon Guidelines:


Remain aware and conscientious of your choice of words and tone. Please do not ask personal questions or give advice. Hate speech or hurtful behavior, regardless of the context will not be tolerated and will lead to immediate removal from the session.


Confidentiality is essential. What is said in the group must stay here. We do not record these session and will not tolerate any recording, transcribing, repeating others' stories or otherwise infringing on the rights and privacy of others.


To ensure that everyone feels comfortable sharing their stories and their feelings, we require everyone to have their cameras on during sessions, except while writing. If you do not comply you will be removed from the session.


When listening to others' stories, put yourself aside so you can hear others from their perspective, without your own assumptions getting in the way. Your job is only to witness each other with appreciation.
