About this Event

We invite you to listen to/tell a health-related story on the theme "Now What?"

Your story can be funny, serious, heartfelt, absurd, lyrical, etc. It can be expressed as a narrative, poem, song, movement, or any genre of your liking. We are seeking story-tellers and story-appreciators, as we gather together to build a narrative medicine community.

Story guidelines:

  • 7 minutes or less
  • may be read from a written story, or told extemporaneously
  • please maintain patient/people privacy and don't use actual names unless you have permission
  • story content can range from serious to funny to absurd to dramatic
  • the event will not be recorded
  • the event will not be judged

We reserve the right to curate the event. We strive to maintain an emotionally safe environment for all, and we will not tolerate disrespectful behavior.

If you would like to be a Storyteller:

Please send us your story proposals as soon as you can.

  • Deadline to apply to be a Storyteller of January 25th, 2023.
  • Share with us what the story is about, and how you plan to present it
