Do Not Submit is a judgment and pressure free night for storytellers from zero to decades of experience to connect, share stories, and hone their craft. For the first time, we are making these true local events, in that each one will reach out to, welcome, and be run by people from the immediate community. Hosts: Margaret Burk and Peter LeGrand
