Tell Us Your Story on Sunday, July 20

mic-148576_640Our next Story-Telling Sunday airs on July 20. We'd love for you to tell us a seven-minute story. Here’s how it works:

1. We’ll use Google Hangouts for our Story-Telling Sundays. To participate, you’ll need a webcam. You also must be caring for a family member or friend. Or, you previously cared for a family member or friend.

2. Story tellers will have seven minutes to tell a story about themselves. The story can be about caregiving. Or not. It just has to be about you. A good story has a beginning, middle and end. The best element of a good story is vulnerability.

3. We’ll share three stories on the third Sunday of every month for a show that airs at 8 pm ET (7 pm CT, 5 pm PT). The event will air live and will be recorded. To participate, you must be available for about one hour, beginning 30 minutes before our show airs and then until the show ends.

4. Story tellers can read their stories or refer to notes. The story must be prepared and must be told within the allotted seven minutes.

5. Some questions to ask yourself as you consider whether or not to be a story teller:

  • Am I ready to tell this story?

  • Do I understand my story?

  • Is this venue (a virtual one) the best audience to tell my story?

  • Do I understand what I want by telling my story?

  • Do I understand what my story means?

You don’t have to have the answers to all these questions but they help you think through your story and your readiness to tell it.
