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.
All roads lead to…where? Whether you’re on the right path or the wrong one, are exactly where you want to be or on a detour, life is full of journeys. Stories at the Storey wants to hear yours. The theme for this month’s Stories at the Storey is Journey.
Do you have an engaging 3-5 minute true story to share? If so, Stories at the Storey would love to hear it at this month’s true story open mic night. To sign up for a storytelling slot, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
What kind of stories are we looking for? At Stories at the Storey we like true stories told well. Stories that make us laugh, cry, think, wonder, imagine…it’s up to you. We are a warm, supportive crowd and the evening is a lot of fun. Stories at the Storey is a great place to get to know people, make new friends and be a part of the community. Stories at the Storey is open to the public (18 and over).

This month Stories at the Storey True Story Open Mic Night is hosting our first ever True or False night.
The stories will be funny, sad, touching, moving and those that aren’t true will be false. The storytellers will not reveal whether their tale is true or false; it will be up to the audience to decide.
Why is Stories at the Storey True Story Open Mic Night hosting a True or False Night?
Some of our audience members would like to share their stories but may be less comfortable sharing true stories. We get it. Sharing your innermost thoughts, dreams and experiences with an intimate group of strangers can appear daunting. So we’re removing the barrier of truth–for one night.
So join us for a night of true or false stories. Drop in to read or to listen. Either way, you’re welcome to join us. The event is free and like always, light refreshments will be served.
Whether it’s true or false, you’re nervous or excited, the piece is written or memorized, we’re looking forward to hearing your story.
Order your free tickets via Eventbrite.
