Full Circle Storytelling, Vol. 4 (A Life Less Ordinary)

  • Jilly's Music Room 111 North Main Street Akron, OH, 44308 United States (map)

"[Full Circle Storytelling] was super awesome! Who knew that front of a crowd would leave me absolutely walking on air? I hadn’t picked up a mic in more years than I can recall, and have been seriously slacking on writing. It was fantastic to shake the dust off them both. Thank you, Wandering Aesthetics!" – Gwyneddh Jones

Open to all, Full Circle Storytelling events revolve around a prompt and the idea: everyone has a story. Sign up to tell a true story inspired by the evening’s prompt or just come to enjoy the evening! (No experience necessary.)

Co-hosted by Wandering Aesthetics, Jilly's Music Room and The Akronist, this intimate evening of storytelling will conjure the spirit of community.

Stories range from heart wrenching to hysterical – and everywhere in-between!

Full Circle Storytelling is FREE and OPEN to the public.

THE PROMPT: 'A Life Less Ordinary'

FEATURED EMCEE: Ryan Scanlon, Second Chance Village

"Have you ever felt like you're not in control of your life?"
– A Life Less Ordinary

Life is inexplicable, unpredictable...and absolutely beyond our control. How many of us have stared out a window wondering: What now? What next? We never know what providence will send our way. Let tonight's Full Circle Storytelling take you away from everyday life, and live life louder, prouder and less ordinary.

Are you ready?

Prompt inspired by submission from: Meghan Meeker
