Soon: Story in the Public Square

With the New Year comes intensified planning for the Story in the Public Square initiative, at Salve Regina University's Pell Center for International Relations and Public Policy in Newport, Rhode Island. The Story website will go live shortly, and we will soon have announcements on the program for Story's first all-day conference, April 12, at Salve -- the student contest, our distinguished panelists, the keynote speaker and more. Story Day will be free and open to all -- the general public, students, journalists, writers, filmmakers, etc. -- but advance registration will be required, details soon....

While our website is not yet live, we do have our Twitter account and you are welcome to add it to your list: @pubstory

Some background on the Story initiative --  celebrating and studying public story telling in American politics, as we call it -- came in a lecture I gave last fall at the Pell Center. The lecture was covered in The Mosaic, Salve Regina University's Independent Student Voice.
