A Storied Affair

Celebrating Writing and Food

Congregation Bet Ha’am is pleased to announce its third annual gala, A Storied Affair. This year, we will gather on Saturday, May 30 to hear readings of original stories, flash fiction, essays, and poetry by Maine writers. Each short piece will be followed by one course in a five-course meal.

While this is our congregation’s main fund-raising event, we hope to make the evening accessible to all, with tickets starting at roughly $36/person. We will also offer higher priced tickets and a raffle.

To make the evening a success, we need your help. If you are a Maine-based writer, please sharpen your pencil, ink your ribbon, or buy yourself a new font: send us your short works when submissions open in March. This year’s theme will be justice. We interpret the theme broadly to reflect times of rallying against great injustices; small moments of victory; heroic figures both super and mundane. Works should run about 3,000 words–or no more than 10 minutes (for both prose and poetry) when spoken aloud. Variety and creativity are encouraged.

I’m interested!

We'll send you a weekly email with our news and events so that you can learn more about us.
