Seeking storytellers for Converging Stories: Tradition (due Oct. 3)

IMPORTANT NOTE: Raleigh Convergence is no longer publishing, as of April 1, 2022. Read more.

Converging Stories, Raleigh’s live community storytelling series, is looking for storytellers for our final event of the 2021 season!

Converging Stories is a true, first-person storytelling series in which community members — your neighbors — are coached to share a story for insight around a theme. 

Each night of storytelling has a different theme.

The theme for the Nov. 8 Converging Stories is Tradition

We’re seeking stories of breaking tradition, making new traditions, insights on family traditions or other interpretations.

Deadline for story pitches: 11:59 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 3.

Anyone connected with the Raleigh and Wake County community can submit their story idea on the theme.

How to submit:

 🎙️ Send a short, 100-word idea to editor@raleighconvergence.com. It doesn’t need to be polished or complete.

 🎙️ Submit your idea no later than 11:59 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 3

 🎙️ Storytellers (usually 4-5) will be selected for coaching to tell their story live at the Converging Stories event.
