Call for True Stories: Victoria Baths

Join us for If These Walls Could Talk,  an event celebrating community, stories, the past, present, and future, at ‘Weekend of Words’ – Sunday Talks, Tales & Tours at Victoria Baths.

We are looking for 5-7 storytellers, writers, readers, neighbors, friends, visitors, and anyone with a true story to share about Victoria Baths, Manchester, community, and/or story. You do not need to be a writer to participate.

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 storiesatthestorey@gmail.com

The event is Sunday, June 9 at 2 PM at Victoria Baths, Manchester

 

North West Literary Arts August Edition

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.

I’m considering audio. Until then, you can read it here: North West Literary Arts Newsletter August 2018

If you have ideas about an engaging newsletter format (that’s intuitive to use) let me know.

Thanks,
Yvonne at North West Literary Arts


If These Walls Could Talk: Lancaster Edition–Call for true stories

Lancaster Stories

Do you have a true story about Lancaster?

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
