Roots: Editors Telling Stories
It’s May — can you believe it? Sunburned people are strolling around in flip-flops, daffodils are popping up in the garden, and life seems a little lighter. Come celebrate spring with us as we explore the oral tradition of a language we so often see in writing. Storytelling connects us to the first, primitive linguists, and carries on today through events like the EAC-NCR Speaker Night.
Before we say goodbye for the summer, join us for a relaxed evening of interactive storytelling. Gather ’round to listen and share a work-related lesson you learned the hard way; an “oops!” moment; or even a tale of unexpected success. By telling a story, you pass knowledge on to others who benefit from the lessons you’ve learned. Many might relate to the amusing (or cringe-worthy) experiences you thought were yours alone!
If you’re not comfortable speaking or wish to remain anonymous, feel free to email your story to firstname.lastname@example.org or provide a written contribution for Allison to read on your behalf. Remember, there are no wrong answers and we’d love to hear from you! All guests are encouraged to share their “blooper” or anecdote, but all are welcome to simply listen in.
Coffee, tea and cookies will be served.
When: Wednesday, May 21 at 7:30 pm
Where: Capital Hill Hotel and Suites, 88 Albert St.
Cost: Free for members; $10 for non-members
