Submission Information for Storytellers


New and seasoned voices from all backgrounds are welcome to share their stories at Duly Noted! 

We are an on-book only show, meaning each teller reads from the text and doesn’t converse/interact with the audience during their story. Shows are at 7:30 at On Tour Brewing Co. in Chicago. 

Upcoming shows and themes will be posted here. We're not looking for storytellers at this time.

Submission Guidelines

Stories must be:

  1. On theme (though it's up to each storyteller to interpret it however they want).

  2. Original and true.

  3. Length is MAX 1,500 words (seriously, we mean it).

We require a full draft, but it can be a work-in-progress. Submit only one story at a time by pasting it in the body of the email or in a Word .doc or PDF (no gdocs please!). We won’t edit your work; we ask for a draft only so we know what the story is all about.

We welcome repeat readers, though we prefer you don't read at back-to-back shows. 

Also include a sentence about yourself with your submission.
