We were excited to team up with the editors of The Literary Review to present a special switched-up storytelling panel at the 50th AWP Conference & Bookfair in Washington D.C.

Our first true-life tale was written by No, YOU Tell It!’s own Mike Dressel who experiences the opposite of “ghosting” when an overseas fling takes a dark turn via text.

Here is “Armageddon in Bloom” written by Mike Dressel and read by Heather Lang.

Switching it up, our next “Deleted Scenes” story is a layered look at friendship, coffee rituals, and the uneven walking room between women and men. Mike Dressel reads “Walking Room: But Who Hasn’t Slept with a Married Man?” written by Heather Lang.

These stories were performed live on February 9th at the 2017 Association of Writers & Writing Programs (AWP) Conference & Bookfair. Click here to learn more about the storytellers.

Podcast narrated by Kelly Jean Fitzsimmons.
