Do you have a story to share?

If you’d like to tell a story, you’re welcome to participate. To be added to the line-up, please contact the host in advance. Be sure to include the date you wish to tell your story. We have a couple of suggestions for storytellers:

  • Come prepared. If you need to refer to paper, we suggest rescheduling for another day
  • Be mindful. We suggest 7-10 minutes maximum, and sometimes that means editing your points. This isn’t a firm limit, and your story can be longer. Simply let the host know how much time you’ll need, so the sequence of storytellers can be adjusted for a better audience experienc.
  • Tip! rehearsing with a timer can help you to establish how much space your story needs

Our Schedule

  • September through May we meet on the third Monday of the month.
  • In December and June we meet on the second Monday.
  • There are no meetings in July and August.
