Calling all writers, storytellers, friends, and anyone with a true story to share!
Maybe it’s a feeling, a state, a place, or a name. This month Stories at the Storey’s theme is “joy” (loosely interpreted). Joy can be fleeting, elusive, meaningful, and something in between. We’re looking for stories that explore, capture, share, or inspire joy in its many meanings, forms, and guises.
Have a true story to share? Email (firstname.lastname@example.org) to sign up for your 3-5-minute (2-4 pages A4) open-mic slot.
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, September 27, 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.
No matter how you live, one thing is certain: one day it will come to an end. Hope, money, destruction: What will you leave behind?
As Stories at the Storey celebrates another month of awesome stories, we are looking to the future, mainly ours, to reflect: how are we making the world a better place? When we’re gone, how will we be remembered?
For true stories of memories, regrets, bucket lists, choices and anything (and everything) in between, this month’s theme is legacy.
Do you have a 3-5 minute true story to share on the theme “legacy” (loosely interpreted)? If so, we would love to hear it. Sign up for your 3-5 minute slot for May’s Stories at the Storey: May 25, 7-8 PM at The Storey in Lancaster.
You can’t take it with you, why not talk about it now?
If you have visited, worked in (past/current) or lived in or near (past/current) Lancaster and have a true story to tell, why not share it May 6 at the Lancaster University Community Day special edition If These Walls Could Talk: Lancaster Open-Mic?
What kind of stories can you share?
True, well-told stories about things you have done, people you’ve met, things you’ve seen, objects (or people) you’ve left behind, things you’ve learned or forgotten. True stories about escapes, encounters, close calls and memories. Stories about loss and found love, first dates, first days of work (and last). Tales of tours, visits and explorations. You name it—you tell it.
Date: Saturday, May 6, 2017
