Submit a story for the Bookmarks Series at the Arts Center of the Capital Region!

Abby is curating and hosting a storytelling event at the Arts Center in March. Bookmarks is “an annual series of group readings and performances featuring work that is grounded in personal experience.” PLEASE CONSIDER SUBMITTING A STORY!  All stories shared at Front Parlor will work well here. And for those of you resisting the microphone and no-notes rule at Front Parlor, you read from your paper for Bookmarks!

Submission deadline is FEBRUARY 23.

More details here:

Flyers will be available at Front Parlor events.

** CHANGE: (er, non-change change) **

FRONT PARLOR – TROY will be same bat time/date, same bat place.  (Second Tuesday.)  Ignore Abby’s announcement at the last FP to switch to 2/17.  So yes, FP – Troy is THIS Tuesday night!

Tuesday, February 10 @ The Ale House (Troy)
Hosted by Abby Lublin
7:30 – 9:30 pm
680 River Street
Theme: “Last Minute”

I’d post an inspiring prompt and questions here, but alas, this is posted at the last minute.

Come share your tale (and listen to others!) “in the nick.”

Monday, February 16 The Olde English Pub (Albany)
Hosted by Gregor Wynnyczuk
7:30 – 9:30 pm
25 Quackenbush Square
Theme: “Obsessions”

There are some things you can’t stop thinking about. People, places, things, experiences, problems…

When you are obsessed you lose yourself, but you also reveal yourself. And when you come out the other side you are often in a different place.

Come tell the story of that journey:
Monday, February 16, 7:30
at The Olde English Pub

Share widely.

If you’d like to throw your name in the can to tell a story, and you know you’ll be a lil’ late, post a comment here.

See you ’round the mic. And as always…

Listening is an act of love.
