Open Mic and Performance Event: Story Club Chicago
Where: Co-Prosperity Sphere, Bridgeport
When: Tuesday September 17, 8:00pm

Story Club Chicago is, according to the organization’s website, “like Fight Club. Except everyone tells stories instead of punching each other in the face. And everyone talks about Story Club. Everyone.”

Each month, the writers and performers of Story Club Chicago organize and host live lit performances, rewriting and rehearsing their pieces to a tee. In addition to Story Club featured pieces, shows include three eight-minute time slots of open mic opportunities for those in the audience who may be itching to read their from their latest work. Everybody wins.

Next Tuesday, September 17, at 8:00pm, Story Club will visit experimental culture center Co-Prosperity Sphere in Bridgeport. The theme of the upcoming show is “Duets,” each story being shared and performed by two tellers. The pairs to read include JH Palmer and Angela Benander, Katie Prout and Ellen LeKostaj, Anrew Marikis and Sarah Hollenbeck.

For those eager to share new work or those simply looking for a night of literary getting-to-know-you, visit the Co-Prosperity Sphere and spend your evening with Story Club. And talk about it afterwards.
