RISK! live storytelling show Seeking Storytellers for show in New Haven (Hamden) on 4/17/20
(Please note: while RISK! like to offer a theme as a launching point for storytellers to brainstorm around, we are much more interested in great stories than we are stories that adhere closely to said theme. Alternate theme ideas might be "Triumph" or "Life or Death")
For more information about what we look for in story pitches and how to submit, go to: http://risk-show.com/

SCAM - BEWARE
One of our members recently received an email invitation to participate in BEYOND THE BORDER - Wales International Storytelling Festival 2016. After speaking with the festival's real organizer, the member confirmed that this invitation was a scam, and that several other tellers have received similar invitations.
The email asks that the teller gives a guest performance and to provide personal information, and offers a great deal of money and perks for the appearance. We assume that once the teller bites, he or she is asked for banking information.
If you receive an invitation to ANY festival, please confirm its authenticity with the festival organizer.
