NEWS RELEASE

STORIES IN THE NORTH

**********************
Dust off your notebook and find that favourite story, poem or song. Stories in the North is back and having an open mic on Sept. 23 in Thessalon. Cash prizes are up for grabs. One winner in each of four categories: True Stories, Fiction, Poetry, and Words n’ Music will take home $50 and bragging rights.

As usual, the audience is just as important as the performers because  audience members vote for the winners by secret ballot.

This open mic will mark 10 years for Stories in the North. Committee members continue to be grateful and amazed at the enthusiasm and generosity it receives from audience members and writers all along the North Shore from Goulais to Elliot Lake. 

Thanks to sponsors: Brent Rankin at the North Shore Sentinel, The BBC book club, Tina Johncox, Enjo with Cyndy King, and an anonymous donor for donating prize money and food for the free snack bar. 

All entries must be original and written by the performer. Stories in the North will accept song parodies in the Words n’ Music category.

Entrants will have five minutes to perform their pieces. After that, they’ll be dragged from the stage with the infamous hook. (It *has* happened. Just ask Thessalon’s Gordon Graham)

If you want to enter, call Rhea McAdam at 705-785-3415 and tell her your name, contact information, and the category you are entering. On open mic night, bring along $5 for your entry fee.

Audience members pay $7 admission. There will be a cash bar.

Location: Thessalon Legion 18 Algoma St., behind the Main St. Pharmacy. Doors open at 7 p.m.
