Just to let you know that content is king.

Lisa Scott will be a feature next month! Thanks so much!

What a great show. The word of the night seemed to be, diverse.

The evening opened up with a great story from Ken Brezinsky about fracking that reminded me of David Holmes’ Fracking Song.

And the night continued on to talk about religion, mothers, missing fathers, lost loves, and games of scrabble. It was a fun night, we got to see Amanda Rountree transform into a typical Dick’s shopper. I think that’s likely to be my biggest belly laugh of the year.

It was a really full crowd for an early January. We had a stellar points turn out too, super-crazy thanks to the thirty-three who dropped your email on us. If you missed the email sign up, there is a place to do it in the sidebar to the right.

Thanks and Congratulations go out to Scott Whitehair

Scott will be invited back to feature again! Be sure to check out his other work through out the month, be it, This Much is True, Do Not Submit, Story Lab, or one of the places he’ll be featuring around town.

He’s also doing a special show out in NY next weekend. All of his shows as well as other awesome Chicago live lit shows can be found on our calendar. (This calendar was originally set up by Aria Alexander Manifold and is maintained by a number of people.)

So thanks to everyone who dropped points on all the tellers who told this year. In Nov. we had more sheets turned in than ever before and we hope a lot of you get to make it back for our big holiday show coming up.

Renegade is Going Awesome!

Have you rsvpd?

So we sold a ton of T-shirts, posters, prints, made some great contacts, picked up a free Square card, and racked up 100+ new invites to RAJEN. And most of all, we listened to some fantastic stories.

One of my favorites came from a little girl, who when asked, “Who is your least favorite teacher?”

Responded, “I don’t think I could ever have something like that.”

Her dad said, “She likes school a lot.”

There were a lot of cute looks, faces, and friendly waves. We met KickStarter Backers, old friends, and made new ones. But that moment in particular stuck out.

It was near the end of the night, but I think it’s because Chicago’s Renegade Craft Fair, even after only one day, had taught us so much.
