Call for Story Collider Pitches – 6 November 2018 deadline

by | Nov 2, 2018

Call for pitches:
The Story Collider is delighted to be partnering with The University of Manchester to hold a science storytelling show at The Birdcage on 6th December 2018.

For this show, we’re seeking true, personal stories about science to be told live on stage. These must be stories with a beginning, middle, and end, not lectures or speeches, and they must be true, first-hand experiences.

They are typically eight to ten minutes long and can be about anything from how you first fell in love with science to a time when science intersected with your personal life to something else completely different. (For examples of great stories, you can hear our podcasts here.)

If you’re interested in sharing your story at the show, please email us at by 6th November and include a short (1-2 paragraphs) summary of your story and “Manchester” in the subject line. Don’t worry if your idea is not fully developed yet – our producers will work closely with you to develop it in the weeks leading up to the show. So please send us your ideas! If we think your story might be a good fit for the show, we’ll confirm with you before November 15.
