The Front Parlor Series began as the Front Parlor Trojan Storytelling Series, birthed at the Ale House in Troy, NY in February of 2011 by host, curator, and NYC-ex-patriot, Abby Lublin.  As of November 2011, the Series has expanded cross-river, so we’ve dropped the Trojan.  At Front Parlor, tellers volunteer their names in a can, and the MC selects the order at random. (Bribes encouraged.) Tellers share 5-minute, true stories based on a common theme.  Front Parlor also features “Flash Nonfiction”- 1-2 sentence, audience-submitted stories responding to a prompt based on the evening’s theme.  Flash nonfiction is a relatively painless way to share your stories.

It’s fun.

Come share. (But you don’t have to.)  And listen.
