Submit by May 13 deadline

Have a story to tell? The Butterfield Library is looking for eight people to each tell a four-minute, non-fiction story of their own (without notes) during the Dragonfly Story Hour for Adults on Friday, June 3.

Moderator Anita Peltonen and host Luanne Morse will select the eight submissions; entries are due by Friday, May 13. Submissions must be no longer than four minutes when told dramatically (about 650 words). If a prompt is needed, think along the lines of, “What it feels like to…” or “The first/last time I ever…” Storytellers must tell their own story.

To enter, submit by email to [email protected] with the subject line “Dragonfly Story Hour, Attn: Anita Peltonen & Luanne Morse” or drop off a hard copy at the library at 10 Morris Ave. Include a phone number and email address. The selected storytellers will be notified on May 20. You must be 18 years or older to enter. The event is made possible by a grant from the New York State Council on the Arts.

Behind The Story

Type: News

News: Based on facts, either observed and verified directly by the reporter, or reported and verified from knowledgeable sources.

Articles attributed to "staff" are written by the editor or a senior editor. This is typically because they are brief items based on a single source, such as a press release, or there are multiple contributors, such as a collection of photos.
