persistence, story night, storytelling, stories, Bremerton, KitsapLike a weed popping up through Washington Avenue; like a poorly formed argument on a Facebook post; or like that smell coming from the neighbors, that lingering, mildly annoying odor that is annoying but doesn’t quite amount to illegality, persistence finds its way in our streets, on our computers and in our neighborhoods. But sometimes persistence rewards, either in our efforts or by becoming an unexpected meme, nevertheless.

On March 1 we’ll gather to hear stories of persistence, of never giving up, whether it was for good or for ill. You have friends and neighbors in Kitsap County who know a few things about persistence and they’re going to tell you about it, on stage, in front of a live audience that’s also drinking wine and beer and eating pizza and pub salads.

It’s Story Night, and you have stories to hear. Or maybe tell.

 

Story Night is not about putting on a skit or performing. It’s about telling a true story, from life, like we are all sitting around a campfire.

The rules for storytellers are these:

No props
No costumes
No notes
True story
About five minutes long
Based on the night’s theme.

We have a few spots available on stage. Comment here, by email at info@storynight.org or contact Steven Gardner on Facebook at the Story Night page or on Twitter @StoryNightWA.

If you just want to hear some storytelling, there’s plenty of room for that. The Cloverleaf will sell you good food and drink while you listen and relate.

Come get to know some of your Kitsap neighbors.

To hear some of the stories from the past, go to storynight.org.

Story Night is presented in partnership with the Kitsap Regional Library.

    this sounds interesting & fun; just missed the Feb 2nd event at Clover Leaf.

    Would like to sign up for event notices; to attend next event to see how this works before signing up to share a story. What a great fun idea & look forward to next event.

      also, at an event, is there opportunity to volunteer to share a story impromptu? or as the spirit leads one? all the more fun is so.
