Thanks to my mother’s Facebook memories, I’ve been reminiscing about a trip I took with my parents and high school best friend to Lake Tahoe the year we graduated high school.
It was a trip I’ll never forget — beyond the beautiful scenery, it was a send-off of sorts as Amy and I entered adulthood and moved off to college. The photos have brought back so many memories and, in a way, have helped to reconnect with an old friend.
The Des Moines Storytellers Project wants to celebrate travel and all it can do for us.
We are seeking stories about traveling for our next night of live storytelling to be held June 14 at Hoyt Sherman Place. Stories can be literal or metaphoric around the theme “Voyages: Life-changing experiences through travel.”
We believe everyone has a story and everyone can tell their story. None of the storytellers who take our stage are professionals. They are our neighbors, friends or co-workers, and they are coached to tell by Des Moines Register journalists.
If you feel like you have a travel story to tell, please email a brief description to [email protected] or fill out the form at DesMoinesRegister.com/Tell.
Our only requirements are that you are an Iowan who will tell a true story that’s (mostly) about you.
All submissions must be received by May 1 to be considered. We have limited spots available but will save submissions for consideration in future shows.
