We’re very excited to announce Vol. 2 of The Downtown Writers Jam: Storytellers. Unlike the original Jam where authors from various genres are asked to perform a 10-minute version of their work, Storytellers was conceived as a more intimate performance.

Vol. 2 Date

  • When: TBD
  • Where: Fountain Square, Indianapolis

How it works

Each author begins their performance by sharing the personal (and true) story that inspired the work they are about to read. There’s no bullshit (unless that is an intimate part of the story), and there’s no backing away. The guilty will be named (within reason). After the totally true tale, the author will then read the piece inspired by real life.

Most shows will include 1-2 opening readers, and a featured author. There will be a short intermission between the opening and featured acts.

Want to participate?

Brad is always scouring the town for new and upcoming talent. We’ll have a professional writer headlining the show. However, we’re looking one or two folks who have finished work they’d like to showcase. Nervous about that, or not sure if you’re ready? No worries, drop Brad an email and he’ll do his best to make you feel better.

It’s easy. Just do this:
