The goal of Story Club is to mix the spontaneity of an open mic with the experience of live theater. We create a forum for writers/performers to display their nonfiction storytelling prowess, read from the page or memorized.

We give you a mic and 5-8 minutes. You tell us a story.

We have open mic slots waiting for you!

Open mic participants are given 8 minutes (1300 words) and can tell a story on the theme or not.

Open mic sign-up starts at 7:30pm and we’ll start the show at 8:00pm. If more than 3 storytellers sign up we’ll draw names for the slots.

At the end of the night, the audience will vote for their favorite story. The winner receives a shiny, golden pile of adoration!

As always, a portion of our donations will be supporting an organization that’s making the world better and better.

Story Club North Side is produced and hosted by Stephanie Douglass.
All the Rage
It starts behind your eyes.
Then the temples.
And now your whole face.

But it began way before that.
And it’s so easy to get swept up in the fires.
Everyone’s doing it.
So why not let yourself get devoured?

The anger, the fad, the all-consuming—it’s in and around every one of us ever minute. And sometimes, we become its tools.

This month, Story Club North Side is all about getting sucked in and sucked up. Letting something else take us over, and getting to reclaim ourselves.

So come share the destruction, the rebuilding, the everybody’s doing it, and the obliterating flames into the mic at Story Club North Side, “All the Rage,” where you’ll light a match with:
