PenTales is Everywhere – well, almost

BLOG,Event March 9, 2012 12:00
PenTales holds live story-sharing events in 26 cities around the world – in places as diverse as Lahore, New York City, Damascus, Berlin, Paris, Hanoi, San Francisco, Mexico City, and Buenos Aires. (See below for our full list of participating cities). The events are run by friends, friends of friends, and kindred spirits, who, like us, believe in the power of storytelling. Whether in Pakistan or Iceland, the salon nights all share the same universal topics. We then use the power of the web to make the tales told at the live local events available across borders. The larger idea is to create a connection between people of different background by getting them to talk about the same things.

Who is behind these events anyway? 
Writers groups, story enthusiasts, people with just a knack for putting together parties, creative souls, galleries and all different sorts of organizations are now holding regular PenTales events. It’s pretty straightforward, all you need to do is contact us at writepentales@gmail.com and tell us your interested in joiing the fun. You then

1) Pick a Topic from the PenTales list
2) Pick a Place (a cafe, your home, a park)
3) Pick some Friends who are good at sharing or enjoying live stories
4) Send us your event details, and we’ll share them with the rest of the PenTales community
5) Send us photos, videos, and texts or your awesome stories after you’ve held your event, and we’ll share them with the world in our Encyclopedia of Stories
