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 firstname.lastname@example.org. 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.
