story submissions

Tell Me A Story is always looking for new storytellers for our future live storytelling events.

Our shows feature true stories on any interpretation of the theme. Storytellers have up to eight minutes, cannot use notes and must be comfortable speaking with a microphone. Each person receives a 30 minute story rehearsal prior to the show date, and gets a video of their story afterwards.

If you are interested in telling a story at one of our shows, look at the upcoming dates and themes and send us a brief pitch using the form below.

Name *
Tell us a little bit about your public speaking/storytelling experience.
Please select which theme your story fits best.
Please share 3-4 sentences that give a sense of your story. Make sure you highlight the beginning, middle, and end. e.g. "I was in this situation, and this thing was going on, and this was the emotional context, and then this eventually happened, and finally I learned this."
(e.g. Why are you passionate about sharing it?)
