Original Storytelling About Love

Door Shakespeare, in collaboration with Write On, Door County, seeks submissions from writers and storytellers for its third live storytelling event on Feb. 8 at Door County Brewing Company.

Inspired by Valentine’s Day, the organizations are seeking true, real life stories from the community based on the theme: Slings and Arrows. Perfect partners or evil exes? Fantastic first dates or dates from hell? Love fulfilled or unrequited? Any love/not love story, they want it for Slings and Arrows.

Submissions are due Jan. 26, should be no longer than 1,400 words, written in the first person, true, and able to be read in front of an audience of all ages. After stories are selected, writers will have the opportunity to craft their writing and storytelling skills with Jerod Santek of Write On, Door County and Jennefer Ludwigsen of Door Shakespeare before the event.

Slings and Arrows will take place Feb. 8 at 1 pm at Door County Brewing Company, 2434 County Road F, Baileys Harbor. All stories and pitches should be emailed to [email protected] no later than Jan. 26. Contact the Door Shakespeare office at 920.839.1500 or Write On, Door County at 920.868.1457 with any questions.
