You’ve heard of The Moth before, right? It’s a storytelling series where people get onstage and tell real stories from their lives. Some of these stories are super interesting, so it’s always a treat to listen to the best. However, The Moth takes place in New York City, and you may not want to go all the way there just to listen to a few people. But you’re in luck. The same kind of event is going to take place at From the Ground Up Community Garden, and it’s called Stories Under the Stars. This is going to be an incredible event that you shouldn’t miss. Whether you want to tell a story of your own or would prefer to simply come out and listen, you need to get the details below.
Stories Under the Stars will happen on Thursday, May 30, from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m., and it’s all taking place at From the Ground Up Community Garden in Pensacola, Florida. There is free admission, but you are encouraged to make a donation if you can.
For this Stories Under the Stars event, the theme is “Grow.” Therefore, if you want to participate, you’ll want to think of something that’s happened in your life that you can fit into that context. Luckily, it’s an idea that’s relatively open to interpretation, so you shouldn’t have any problems thinking of something suitable. Remember, if you decide you want to tell a story, it has to be original. You cannot have any notes with you, and the story must stay under the five-minute mark.
Also, you should know that there are two ways to win. First of all, there will be judges deciding on the best story. However, there is also a people’s choice award. Therefore, two people will go home winners. You never know if it’s going to be you, so don’t forget to come out and share your story!
