Call for True Stories: Power

It flows through the veins, captures the mind, and captures the imagination; from the boardroom to the bedroom and everywhere (it seems) in between, power consumes, divides, devours, and captivates. Stories at the Storey invites you to share your true stories loosely interpreting the theme “power” in whatever way you define it.

We’re looking for stories that explore, interpret, test, define, and use the theme “power” whatever that means to you. The theme is open to your interpretation.

Have a true story to share? Email ( to sign up for your 3-5-minute (2-4 pages A4) open-mic slot. Remember, you don’t have to be a writer to share your story. We are looking for anyone with a true story to share.

Not sure you’re ready to read your true story? That’s fine too. Come by and listen. If you would like to share a story but want us to offer some feedback, get in touch. We can help you get your story ready.

When: Thursday, May 30, 7-8 PM

Where: Printroom Café, Lancaster

Sponsored by Graduate College, Stories at the Storey is a pay what you decide event. Readers are not asked to or expected to pay. Order free tickets via Eventbrite.
