Get ready for another session of ten-minute stories told off-the-cuff. The Telling Room's next Slant event is scheduled for Friday, February 12th, 7pm at Space Gallery in Portland. They've convinced five brave storytellers to take the stage and share stories on the theme "Gulp," which means you'll be treated to stories of red-eared, tight-chested, lump in the throat anxiety, whether from embarrassment, humiliation, or a circumstances beyond their control. The stories might be as simple as a first date, job interview, or public goof, or as deep as facing an illness, the loss of a loved one, or a life-changing dilemma.
Tellers for this session include Kazeem Lawal, owner of Portland Trading Co.; Oliver Griswold, a Portland-based brand strategist; Deidre Fulton, actress and Common Dreams staff writer; and arts administrator and writer Donna McNeil. Tickets are $10 and doors open at 7pm.
