April’s Stories at the Storey: True or False in Pictures

This month saw the routine of the popular true or false night. Writers shared pieces through poetry and stories; through fiction, creative nonfiction, and blends of both.

As always, we were touched by the pieces shared and the trust placed in us. We welcomed new writers to the stage as well as a piece shared anonymously, as well as many of our regular readers. We welcome writers, readers, storytellers, friends, visitors, anyone with a story to share at any writing and/or performing level.

It was a warm environment and another great night of true and false stories. Hope to see you there next month when we return to true stories. We’ll be announcing the theme over the next few days. If you’d like to share your story, let us know. Need help developing it? Let us know that too. We are always happy to help.

Mari Taha shared the following pictures with us.
