Story Luck

  • 12 people are interested
StoryLuck
One of our shows

During the last few years, we've found it's harder for people to really listen to each other.

To deal with this we've started a weekly storytelling show that runs every Monday on Twitch.tv/storyluck

We are looking for writers and creatives who want to learn Wordpress, SEO, to help us grow our influence online.

We've had volunteers in the past who've been go getters, and those who've needed a bit of hand holding. Both kinds are fine, but we need you to want to get to a place where you have a vision of what you want to create with us. That's where the true value to each other comes from. Our mission is to listen. That means we want to listen to our volunteers and staff too. We want to help you tell your stories.

Do you want to host a storytelling show? Run your own Stream? Start your own blog? Help us, and we will help support you in those goals as well. We want this to be a mutually beneficial opportunity.

Specific things we will be working on at first. Every week, we write articles about the craft of writing. You'll learn how to post them to Wordpress and how to share those articles on our social media platforms using Hootsuite as well as other aggregation methods/platforms.

Once you have that down, we will open up our free private writing workshop. There you'll be able to work on personal essays which we'd be happy to share via StoryLuck.org.

And once you've gotten an article or two under the belt, we'll start encouraging you to brainstorm with us to create new initiatives and fun products.

About Story Luck

Location:

1191 HUNTINGTON DR, MUNDELEIN, IL 60060, US

Mission Statement

Story Luck is a 501c3. Our main shows are at Stage773.

Our mission: to bring together Chicago’s various creative communities, to connect with one another, to foster the art of telling and listening, to provide a platform of support for the work of known and developing storytellers, monologists, and solo performers.

We listen to stories, tell stories, and create stories.

We strive to make every event one worth telling about.

Everything we publish is done so with an open license.

Description

Our main shows are A Month Of, Journey to the End of the Night, and Story Luck.


It is with great love for this city--which continues to be a heart and home for some of the most important cultural movements and artists of our century: musical, theatrical, literary, political, educational, architectural, comedic, scientific, philosophical, etcetera--that we wish to offer Chicago’s thinkers and creators a place to overlap, listen to, and be inspired by one another. We are interested in embodied storytelling as a form and as a medium for exchange.

In that spirit, we began these events with open story-swaps and continue to warmly welcome spontaneous, anyone-can-do-it style sharing. Now we feature the work of five invited tellers and ask for five stories from the audience. We also ask that the audience participate by awarding points to the open swappers. These points select one of the next featured tellers. To find four more features we search all of humanity’s various disciplines because life is an open swap and good stories come from everywhere. Along with our walk-up tellers our features share their stories generously with a group of supportive, delighted listeners.

Story Luck is the coming together of disparate communities to highlight that we all have stories worth listening to. As such it can only exist if we invite everyone. Come - take part, because this entertainment is interactive. In the tradition of good story-swaps our evenings are potlucks, and all are invited to bring a dish to share. (Of course if everyone came with food we’d have way too much, so the only thing anyone is obliged to bring is an appetite and an ear for active listening.)

Anyone who wishes to contribute or donate in anyway is encouraged to contact us by email. We host many free events through out the year, and we are not-for-profit. Our monthly potluck is $5.00 or free with a shared dish. Here’s the Story is simply a reason to come together and make learning wonderful, online and off.
