Speak Easy, Columbus’ longest-running open-mic storytelling series, will hold its monthly event on Thursday, April 5th.

The series, which touts “True Stories Told Live,” has been held at Wild Goose Creative since 2010. Some of Speak Easy’s “tellers” are writers looking to perfect their craft, while others are first-time public speakers, emboldened by a gracious audience and an encouraging atmosphere.

“We have a generous audience. Since we’re an open-mic night, we don’t choose who comes on stage. We take the first ten people who sign up. So in many ways, the audience is more curated than the entertainment,” said Host Sarah Fulmer. “They are so present and attentive, I think it encourages people who otherwise might not have signed up to tell.”

Speak Easy has been held at Wild Goose Creative since its beginning, though the event’s organizers are quick to point out that the groups are separate entities. “We’re a small group of people working for free, but our goal is to eventually incorporate as a 501(c)-3,” said Producer Meag Horn.

Speak Easy is held the first Thursday of every month at 7:00 PM, though Fulmer encourages folks to show up early if they plan to tell. “We’ve been getting busier, and sometimes folks who’d planned to tell don’t always get a chance to sign up,” she said. “It helps to plan ahead.”
