Open the door. Step into a story.
Tell your true tale or lean in and listen.
Be entertained. Be moved. Be heard.
Open mic, 5 mins, no notes, it happened to you.
First Friday of the month.
Doors open at 7.30pm, stories begin at 8pm.
Holgates Hotel, High Street, Woodend, Vic,
(that's in Australia, just in case, you're not from round here, the internet is a big place, sometimes you have no idea where you are).
This is an open opportunity for ten people to tell a five minute true story, without notes, and for the rest of us to listen.
To tell a story register by emailing me, or take your chances and rock up on the night and if there is space on the list, away you go.
Each night has a theme, themes are meant as prompt, guides, helpful for those of us stuck. Feel free to be creative and think outside the box.
May 5, 2017 Theme: Sickness and Health
Tell us a story of the body, how a crisis of health, your own or someone around you, came to your life. Tell us about the vomit, blood, guts and pain. Tell us about sickness in a relationship, your heart or your mind, tell us about the doctors and nurses, the patients, the tests, the fears and acceptance.
