Words that Change the World, a novel fundraising event to benefit The Telling Room. This first-of-its-kind night at Ocean Gateway on Thursday, May 16th will feature world-changing wordsmiths and storytellers—both emerging and established—whose work has a tangible impact on our community. The evening begins at 5pm with a host reception, followed by a powerful program of performers and writers at 6pm:
Drag Storytime with Chartreuse Money

Ticket sales support The Telling Room’s writing and publishing programs, which empower youth through writing and share their voices with the world. Through this event, The Telling Room is excited to support our partner in programming, the Maine Writers & Publishers Alliance, which works to enrich the literary life and culture of Maine.
