What You'll Do

Storytelling is an innate skill, and the Chicago-based Story Club strives to elevate instinct to performance art. During a rapturous two-hour evening of storytelling, Story Club founder Dana Norris introduces you to Chicago's thriving scene of gripping yarn-spinners, who will offer a private performance on the night's theme. After the show, the storytellers will join you in the audience and help you develop a nonfiction story of your own. You'll leave with a draft of your story as well as Story Club swag and a guide to some of Chicago's best storytelling shows.

    Storytellers tell true tales of times things caught on fire—figuratively or literally.

  • August 11: "What I Should Have Said"
    Stories revolve around moments when tellers should have said one thing, but said another.

  • September 10: "Back to School"
    Storytellers will relate true tales of school, learning, and how going back can be necessary to go forward.

What to bring: A pen and paper to record your story, and money for food and drinks, which will be available for purchase throughout the evening.
