What Was Lost in Translation

What Was Lost in Translation

Please join us for the Northwest Narrative Medicine Collaborative's third Seattle Storytelling event. We invite you to tell a medicine/health-related story on the theme "What Was Lost In Translation." Your story can be funny, serious, heartfelt, absurd, lyrical, etc. It can be expressed as a narrative, poem, song, or any genre of your liking. We are seeking story-tellers and story-appreciators, as we gather together to build a narrative medicine community.

Story guidelines:

• 7 minutes or less
• you may read from a written story, or tell a story extemporaneously
• please maintain patient/people privacy and don't use actual names unless you have permission
• story content can range from serious to funny to absurd to dramatic
• the event will not be recorded
• the event will not be judged

We reserve the right to curate the event. We strive to maintain an emotionally safe environment for all, and we will not tolerate disrespectful behavior.

Doors open at 5:30; Storytelling from 6:00-8:00pm.

If you want to tell a Story, please purchase the free Storyteller Tickets; if you are not a Storyteller, general admission tickets cost $15.
