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 8:00pm and we’ll start the show at 8:30pm. 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.
War on Christmas
Spoiler Alert: It’s not real…

Or maybe we’re all fighting it every day.

“Seasons greetings” fills some folks with rage, but we’re going to be greeting the heck out of this season, celebrating dozens of holidays, along with manufactured outrage, thoughtful gifts, and hysterical hygge.

This month, Story Club North Side is all about the meanings behind the myths, the reasons for the seasons, the joys and terrors of consuming, and how we spin the hardest things to handle.

So light up your Yule log and shout “Happy Holidays” from the rooftops and straight into the mic with us at Story Club North Side, “War on Christmas,” where we’ll exchange the gift of story with:


Jen Bosworth

Karen Shimmin

Phyllis Porche


Do YOU have a true, personal story that will propel us right back up the chimney?
