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.

Gerry Dignan tells stories and sings songs of Old Ireland. “Back in the mid-70’s, my Great Aunt Ellen Quinn and other relatives & friends from the west of Ireland, told me stories in their kitchens and passed along the old Irish folklore and beliefs, superstitions and ways of life before the arrival of the modern era to their fields, bogs and cottages. I promised Aunt Ellen I would tell the stories of old Ireland in America and so I do just that. And, of course, with a sprinkle of Irish music."

Special guest Doug Lipman to share "My Mother and the Menorah". My Christian mother's tacky electric menorah—and its hidden power.
Having a Jewish father and a Christian mother, Doug Lipman saw how stories can mold loving relationships—and how every story can be told from more than one point of view. No wonder Doug became an internationally known storyteller and pioneering storytelling coach!
