Join Speak Easy on Zoom for TRUE STORIES, TOLD LIVE on Thursday October 1st, 2020. Our theme this month is “No Solicitors: Stories of Unwanted Visitors.” Tell us your stories about someone who just wouldn’t take the hint, tricker treaters who came to your darkened doorstep, or a haunting you couldn’t shake. But also, like every month, feel free to tell a story the theme inspires. We are also live streaming this on Speak Easy’s Facebook page.
If you haven’t used Zoom yet, don’t worry it’s pretty simple! At the bottom are the steps for downloading the app onto your computer.
We’ll open up the “meeting” at 6:30pm for anyone who would like to tell or hangout before. To tell you’ll have to make sure you have access to a webcam and audio (there’s a link below to test those features in Zoom). Stories start around 7:15pm
If you’d just like to watch, you don’t have to have webcam/audio capabilities, and you won’t have to video broadcast if you’d prefer not to. Although I imagine our tellers would love to see your faces/reactions to their stories!
Everyone except the tellers and host are muted during stories to cut down on overlapping audio. However, you can jazz hands, thumbs up, visibly react to stories on webcam, or comment in the chat room.
***We will be recording the event and sharing it to our Facebook page afterwards. If you want to tell but not be recorded, let us know before your story and we’ll stop recording.***
Lastly, this is a FREE event! We want to keep meeting and sharing stories however we can.
