Art Rapids and Here: Say present

a night of story telling at Herth Hall (401 River Street) in Elk Rapids

Here: Say is a live storytelling show that was created by Karen Stein. It is a space where we can reconnect through the hilarious, heartfelt, and sometimes horrifying stories that tell life’s many truths. Based on a theme, anyone is invited to submit their story. Simply send Karen Stein your pitch (see details below), craft your story, and then have your moment in the spotlight.

The theme for this event is SHOWTIME!

7:00 p.m. on Wednesday, August 14


The story you tell on stage centers on an experience that has always stayed with you. A story for the stage should have (1) a beginning, middle, and end, (2) something happening (doing something, not just thinking about/analyzing something), and (3) stakes, that is, something you stand to gain or lose. 

To pitch the story you wish to tell, follow the link below and fill in the form on the pitch your story page, to share the most important details. Submission of full written stories and recorded pitches are also accepted.

To submit your full draft or recorded pitch, email it to
