(Even if you aren't ready to tell a story, come be part of the audience. It's fun. But be aware that some stories may include adult themes and adult language. All potential audience members should use their discretion, especially those who care for young children.)
"Damp" DIGITAL EDITION (Season Finale)
7:00 pm, May 28
Think of the times that have made your palms sweat. Nervousness, exertion, excitement, attraction, embarrassment- lots of things can provoke the same response. Think of the moments in your life that have been influenced by water. When have you come across mud puddles, oceans, broken pipes, and water balloons?
This event will be held on Zoom. For security reasons, we ask that you register in advance.

In this time of isolation and uncertainty, storytelling is more important than ever. After surveying our audience to find out what they would like to see from The Corner, we’ve come up with a digital alternative to our usual event.
How it works:
This will be a live event on the Zoom app (which does require installation, but is free).
We will share our screen and audio with attendees. We will play pre-recorded videos from our storytellers so that everyone can watch them together. Afterwards, out storytellers will respond (live) to audience questions and comments.
For security reasons, we ask that you register in advance. Once registered, you will receive an email with the link before the event.
Share your story!
*Note* we have already gathered our story submissions for this event. Thank you!
If you have a story for the theme “Damp," please send us a video. Recordings should follow the usual Corner guidelines - 5 minute (or shorter) true stories, told from the heart (not reading from notes). Set up your webcam or smartphone, hit record, and share your story! Good audio is more important than good visuals, but please do consider lighting - we’d like to see your expressions. If we can help give you advice or tech support, please let us know! Once you have a video, email it to firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll take it from there.
Due date for the videos:
We must receive all submissions no later than midnight on Sunday, May 24th.
Take our theme description as a starting point, but don't let it limit you. We invite stories that invert this theme in creative ways and go in unexpected directions.
No matter what, you have a story, and the rest of us want to hear it. But don't come to give a general speech about it. Come tell us a story. Think of a specific time in which you figured prominently. Reflect on your story. Have the courage to go back to the emotions, and, most importantly, your vivid memory of the events that caused the emotions. Then, craft your story (here are some tips on how), and come to The Corner ready to tell it. We want to hear it.
