What kind of stories? Stories about living nearby, visiting, working there, walking by, passing through, building, dropping off packages, collecting post, organizing trips, what ever stories you want to share, we want to hear them.
What next? If you’d like to share your true story in person, record it to share on the day, or have one of us read and/or record it for you, please message us at firstname.lastname@example.org
The event is Sunday, June 9 at 2 PM at Victoria Baths, Manchester
This month’s edition of North West Literary Arts features brief insights into last month’s Stories at the Storey and reflections on our first Lancaster Pub Hub. We also reveal August’s theme and issue a call for volunteers.
Finally, we share our top tips for reading at Stories at the Storey.
I’m going to be exploring other options for the newsletter to make it more accessible. I know quite a few organizations use Mailchimp. I’ve tried it a few times but I can’t get it to work for me.
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
Time: 3-4 PM
Location: Lancaster University, LICA Building
