Great news: not only will The Advocate continue hosting monthly Storytelling Nights in 2019, but we’ve also booked a steady time and place for the event! That’s right, until we say otherwise, all future Storytelling Nights will be hosted at DeMaggio’s Pizza, every third Thursday of each month, from 7 to 9 p.m.
Consider us your Arts Walk after party, as we absolutely recommend checking out the fantastic works by local artists each month before settling in for a slice or a pie (or a salad — we won’t judge), to pair excellently with real stories told live from Corvallis folk such as yourself. These stories never cease to inspire all the feels in the audience, as they lend a window into the unique experiences of locals from across all walks of life.
Speaking of individuals, January’s theme will be “Old Selves.” As humans, we sometimes emerge on the other side of a personal journey or period of growth to discover that we’re not at all who we used to be. Tell us who you used to be, compared to who you are now, on Thursday, January 17.
RSVP on Facebook or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org to subscribe to monthly e-mail notifications. Limited slots are available to those wishing to pre-register to speak. If interested, please contact the aforementioned email with your name and a short synopsis of the story you plan to tell. Stories should be told in 7 minutes or less, and as always, Storytelling Nights are open to all ages and serve as a safe space for all who attend.
Sign-up begins at 6:45 p.m. Suggested donation of $5 at the door. All proceeds benefit independent journalists at Corvallis’ only locally-owned newspaper.
