at a Cafe Coffee Day



Monday 2 January 2017, at 6pm.


Cafe Coffee Day Square,

Khader Nawaz Khan Road, Nungambakkam.


Topic of the Day: 

"New Beginnings."


This would be a round of the Chennai Storytelling Contest (adult English language section).  Days and times of additional rounds in Jan 2017 would be announced here soon.  The winner would be announced after the final round, on Mon 6 Feb 2017, at CCD Square.


Contestants are required to attend at least 2 rounds, and to tell at least 2 stories:

1) A Personal-experience story, and

2) A story of any other kind.


Event Format:  The Storytelling Host would tell a story, and then there would be an open mic (ten minute time-limit per teller).


Any type of story could be told, including stories about personal-experiences, historical stories, grandmother stories, and original creative stories.


One could tell, or just listen.


Storytelling is a form of public speaking that sometimes involves acting (when one acts-out characters). 


This monthly series (usually on the 1st Monday of the month) is in its 4th year.  Links to 5 articles about these sessions are here


The sessions tend to become informal Storytelling Workshops.


The sessions are also informal meetings of the Chennai Storytelling Association.  (All are welcome!)


Admission:  Rs 250 (includes coffee/tea). 


Presented by the World Storytelling Institute (an NGO registered in Chennai in 2007).


If possible, please call or e-mail to reserve a seat.
