Stories at The Storey: Brief reflections on the first event

The first Stories at The Storey is behind us, the words have settled and I'm still smiling.

The evening was filled with true stories, an engaged audience, a selection of nibbles and a tour. Launching the Grad College PG Study Hub with the launch of Stories at The Storey has led to the creation of a rewarding ongoing relationship. I couldn't have asked for more.

There were engaging true stories about launching writing careers, research endeavors, creative collaborations, relationship-interventions, honesty manifestos and Black Friday survival tips. The five speakers shared stories without happy endings, about endings and some without endings at all.

The storytellers shared chapters of their lives that ideally left listeners wanting more.

Sponsored by Lancaster University's Grad College, Naomi and I are preparing for the next Stories at The Storey in January. The theme is Resolutions. We will be looking for five storytellers to share loose interpretations of your true stories about resolutions past, present or future.

Stories at the Stories: Real people, Real stories.
