Long Story Short

Long Story Short offers a populist platform for anyone, and we mean anyone, to join us and tell a story, without notes, for five minutes or less on a different theme every month. No RSVP necessary, just check the schedule for the next event and show up ready to share! It’s a great place to come and meet people, with an extraordinarily welcoming environment and supportive people genuinely curious to hear true stories from strangers in their community, whether funny, painful, practiced or off the cuff.


Long Story Short is the third Saturday night of every month, held at The Ink Spot at San Diego Writers, Ink, located in Liberty Station.

Check out our themes for the remainder of 2017! Each theme is designed to complement the following month’s VAMP theme – just in time to submit a story to VAMP if you were inspired by Long Story Short.
