Raconteurs presents “READING & WRITING” Feb 8th, 2017!

February 8, 2017 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm


Join us for the first Raconteurs Storytelling event of 2017! We’re teaming up with the Book And Periodical Council to present an evening of true stories all about READING & WRITING! We want your stories about BOOKS! All tales of our relationships with the written word, be it reading or writing!

Did you keep a diary as a teen?
Have you written something that wasn’t taken as intended?
Has your writing been censored or challenged? Have you censored yourself?
Bonded with a friend or family member over a favourite book?
Struggled to overcome writers’ block?

We want YOUR STORY!!

Raconteurs stories must be true, have happened to you personally, and be 7-10 minutes in length. If you have a story to share, please send a brief 3-4 sentence pitch to submissions@raconteurs.ca!
Past stories can be viewed online at www.youtube.com/raconteursstorytelling

Pitch guidelines are available on our website!
