Reading/hearing stories and poetry out loud is a very different experience to reading them in your head. At Institute of Stories anyone can be a reader and anyone can be listener. I curate a selection of literary readings around a theme and we share and discuss the together – a bit like an English Literature lesson for adults!
The group meets on a bi-monthly basis at venues around Porthleven, regularly attracting audiences of up to 20 people to our events. We’ve also appeared at local festivals including Porthleven Food Festival and Apollo 50.
