Now Recruiting Storytellers! – Apply Online by February 22nd!

Have you had one of those “oh no” moments while traveling abroad that made you realize the culture you were experiencing was a little different from home? Are you a transplant to Alaska who has experienced culture shock adjusting to Alaskan norms? Have you traveled abroad and gleefully immersed yourself in a new culture? We want to hear your stories and feature you!

At our second annual WorldNarratives story evening, occurring Thursday, March 22nd from 5:30pm to 7:30pm, will be formatted in the spirit of Arctic Entries. As such, “your story must be yours and it must be true. The best Arctic Entries story you can pitch has a clear beginning, middle, and end; something to lose or to gain (i.e., it matters to you!); and fits our seven-minute format.”

Apply online to share your story in March!
