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

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.
