The Spark is true story telling... live

Last autumn in New York we visited The Moth, which is an exuberant and popular real-life storytelling night. Inspired by this, New Writing North and Hexham Book Festival have got together to bring our own version to the North East, and we've called it The Spark.

We want to hear from people from all walks of life who are willing to prepare a true story on a theme and perform it for a curious crowd of friendly but discerning listeners.

To take part, all you need to do is turn up on the night and put your name in our hat. If you are picked, you get the chance to get up on stage and do your thing. A judging panel made up of audience members will score each story according to The Rules. The winner will get a huge heap of love and glory.

• Each story must last no more than five minutes
• Your story must be based on the theme set by The Spark.
• The story must be true

The next Spark event is at The Cumberland Arms, Newcastle on Thursday 14 July 2011 at 8pm
