We believe every story is important, which is why we work hard to create programs and events where you can share yours.

Give now, we have more stories to tell. We need your help keeping stories alive!

SUBMIT. Everyday writing makes us human. [Submit your journal entries today] Pendragon Theatre is preparing for their upcoming production of Fiction, by Steven Dietz, which opens June 16 and runs through June 25. The play follows a couple and their lives through their own journal entries. To celebrate everyday writing, we are teaming up and asking people of all ages to share journal entries of their own, a page from personal journals including:

  • diaries
  • travelogues
  • birding journals
  • gardening notes
  • shopping lists
  • to-do lists

Nothing is too mundane. People can create fictional entries to submit if they want to, keeping in mind, however, that truth can be stranger than fiction. Send us yours by June 5.
