YOUR INTELLECTUAL SIDE : Storyteller's Night : Happenstance  

March 14th// 6:30pm- 8:30pm

Do you have an interesting story to tell? Come share it!

Do you love hearing other people tell interesting stories? Come listen!

1859 Cider Co. is partnering with The Mill, Willamette University's literary publication, to bring you a monthly storytelling event! 
Each month will have a general theme that is hopefully broad enough to attract different variations on said theme.
This month is "Happenstance" - stories of coincidence, fate, and encounter.
The first event will run from 6:30-8:30pm and storytelling time slots are up to 15 mins. (Be sure to practice your story so that you stay within the time given).
Storytelling is broad...maybe it needs to be told by two people? As a short 1 act play? Maybe in song?
There will be a mic and speaker available. 
Folks with any current student ID and those sharing stories will receive a 10% discount on cider!
INTERESTED IN SHARING?? - please email to secure a time slot.
