For the better part of this year, we have been locked down under quarantine in our homes, isolated from family and friends. For some of us who have previously suffered from being imprisoned, confined, stuck, contained, blocked, cornered, or trapped, physically, mentally, spiritually, psychologically, or emotionally, in one way or another, then this current lock down may not be so unique an experience, and may even be familiar.

We invite you to share your experience and tell your story on August 20, 2020 at 7:30 PM via Zoom, in our first live online episode of Shorts, an open mic story telling event.

The theme of the night is, LOCKED DOWN.
