I love hearing a good story and I enjoy telling my own.  I love it so much I’d like to be able to go to hear storytelling every night of the week just like they do in New York City!

Linda Thomas - Tell Me More Stories

I have always looked forward to the stories on National Public Radio such as “This American Life”, “The Moth” and “Snap Judgement”, but once I started attending The Oral Fixation Show in the Dallas Arts District and hearing SMU students at Union Coffee, I decided I wanted more places to go hear MORE stories.  Jane Hardin and I started “Truth & Daring: Open Mic Night” at South Side on Lamar in 2015.  And now I am ready to start another venue closer to where I live in Flower Mound March 2017.

I will keep you posted on storytelling venues through www.TellMeMoreStories.org
