Storytelling Meetup: Everybody Fails

Let's get together and tell true-life stories! (Meaning, these things actually happened to you!) Our June meetup will have the theme: Everybody Fails. We tend to focus on success, and sometimes, it seems like everyone is moving at a faster pace than we are. Let's take time to share our failures, how we learned from them, how they changed us, and how they've helped us grow. We're often told that failure is not an option, but often, embracing a failure can ultimately lead to even greater success down the road. As always, our themes are open to interpretation.

So, how does this work? Our storytellers are given 5-7 minutes to tell their story. 

The first half of the evening will consist of stories that were submitted to us ahead of time after which time, we will open the floor to anyone to share their story!

If you want to share, please send a message to Self Narrate on Facebook or to with a brief outline of your story (2-3 sentences). The reason for this is that it is best to prepare your story ahead of time, practicing how the story can be told in 5 minutes. (The time goes fast!) 
We need your story submissions by Monday, July 18!

This meetup will be at The Bull on June 21, from 7:30-8:30PM.
