Prose of Pie — “Love Hurts” Storytelling Night at HVWC
February 15 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm UTC-5$20
Pros(e) of Pie is the Hudson Valley’s longest running and most popular storytelling series bringing you storytellers you’ve heard on nationally renowned radio, podcasts and live shows, as well as cultivating local voices. On February 15, we return to the riverfront Hudson Valley Writers Center (at the Philipse Manor RR Station) for a “LOVE HURTS” themed show featuring both returning faves and storytellers making their PoP debuts.(*No pie bake-off this month.)
You can sit back and enjoy the show or join the fun: sign up for a 5-mins open mic slot or submit an anonymous response to a written prompt and we’ll read your words for you. Either way, we’ll all be there to support and share.

*Bryan Berlin – host, Love Hurts podcast; Moth StorySlam champ
*Courtney Antonioli – The Moth Radio Hour; YouTube’s Stay Golden

ABOUT THE THEME: Not exactly anti-Valentines, more like alt-love stories. Have you had your heart crushed? Do you have an unusual relationship with an Ex? Have you been navigating your own gender and sex preferences? Did you find love in an unexpected place? Heck, did you make love in an unexpected place?
ABOUT THE SHOW: Join us to hear storytellers from around the region tell true personal tales on the monthly theme in a Moth-inspired format. You can sit back and enjoy the show or join the fun: sign up for a 5-mins open mic slot or submit an anonymous answer to a written prompt that we’ll read off for you. Either way, we’ll all be there to support and share.
We all have a story within us. Come share, listen, and enjoy!
