Call for Submissions: May Stories at the Storey

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?

Call for writers, readers, storytellers and listeners

Love. It moves mountains, opens doors, inspires creativity and completes us. In the wrong hands it can turn wrong. Good or bad, Stories at the Storey wants to hear your love story.

Whether you’re in it, out of it, whether you’ve lost it or found it, Stories at the Storey wants to hear your love story or true story about love (loosely interpreted).

Stories at The Storey is a true story open-mic night. We’re looking for writers, readers, performers, students, community members, staff, visitors and anyone with a true story to share about love (loosely interpreted).

Join us as we share stories about the ways we search, find, define, live with or live without love.

If you have an engaging story that loosely explores the theme “love” we would love to hear it or come along and listen to true stories shared by real people.

Anniversaries, Stories and Hope: Stories at the Storey Call for True Stories

Stories at the Storey is 2 years old!

Join us as we celebrate our two-year anniversary with a two-month virtual True Story Open Mic Night.

The theme is “hope.” Hope and action, hope and love, hope and prayer, hope and…We can all use a little hope and we’re hoping you have some to spare. We would like to hear your stories loosely interpreting the theme “hope.”

How can you join us?

Between now and December 31, 2016, share your 300-750 word true story or your 3-5 minute video or recording telling your true story about hope.

What kind of story?

A true one, otherwise it’s up to you. We like stories that make us laugh, cry, reflect, wonder…We just like well told true stories.

What happens next?

Well-crafted written stories will feature on our blog. We’ll compile the videos and audio recordings into a short production and share it with the world.

As 2016 rolls into 2017, we can all use a little hope.
