Full Circle Storytelling, Vol. 3 (Prompt: Happiness Is...)

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

"The importance of Full Circle cannot be overstated… Storytelling is such a healing and loving way to share with your community.”Jennifer Betz

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!

Registration is encouraged, (especially for storytellers), but not required. To register or for more information, please visit, email or call 330.612.3090.

Full Circle Storytelling is FREE and OPEN to the public.

EVENT HASHTAG: #FullCircleStories


Happiness is finding a pencil/pizza with sausage/telling the time…
Happiness is learning to whistle/tying your shoes for the very first time…
Happiness is two kinds of ice cream/knowing a secret/climbing a tree…
Happiness is five different crayons/catching a firefly/setting him free…
Happiness is a warm gun.

While this unsettling “You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown”/Beatles mash-up gives us rather specific details about what “happiness is”, its true message lies in what happiness is not. Happiness is not the same to everyone. Join Wandering Aesthetics with emcee Drew Louis (Actor with Pro-Model & Talent Mgmt. • Senior at Hudson High School (Ohio)) to share stories about what “Happiness Is…” for each of us.

Prompt inspired by submission from: Jennifer Betz


Full Circle is a successful monthly storytelling event open to the community. Telling their own true tales, Akronites place themselves at the center of their own life journeys. We use the art of narrative to ignite understanding between diverse peoples, building bridges– not walls– within our community.
