Stories at the Storey Call for True Stories, Lies and Fiction

Believe it or not, it’s nearly time for this month’s Stories at the Storey. This month’s theme is true or false!
Do you have a 3-5 minute true (or false) story that will make us laugh, think, remember, connect, cry or anything in between? If so, we would love to hear it. To sign up to share your true or false story, get in touch. Message, tweet, comment. We’re looking forward to hearing your true story, even if it isn’t true.

This month’s Stories at the Storey:

When: Thursday, April 27th
Time: 7 PM
Where: The Storey

As always, entry is free and so are the refreshments.

The Macguffin will be on hand to record your story:
Are you a writer, poet or spoken word performer who wants your work to reach a wider audience? Why not try out MacGuffin, a self-publishing platform (website and app) by Comma Press, which allows you to upload text and audio of your written work. It’s free to use, and all you need to record your audio is a smartphone! Plus it works as an editing tool for writers thanks to analytics you can view through your desktop. For more info visit macguffin.io.

Please keep in mind you are under no obligation to have your story recorded. If you want to share your story and not have it recorded, let us know.
