Coloradoan Storytellers Project

We have partnered with the Coloradoan for a series of events where members of the Fort Collins community share their stories and speak from their experiences. The topic changes with each event and you can be one of the storytellers! Email Alexandra Smith to find out how.

Next Storytellers Project Event

Life In Fort Collins
May 31, 2017 6:00PM – 8:00PM
Northside Aztlan Community Center
112 Willow Street
Fort Collins, CO 80524

What it means to live in Fort Collins is different for every one of us.

Let’s come together for true, first-person stories from people who have experienced challenges living here, from accessing public transportation to looking for steady work to feeling like the other.

We’re looking for tellers! If you have a story to share around your experiences in Northern Colorado, please email Alexandra at

The Coloradoan Storytellers Project came from the idea that oral storytelling and journalism have the same goals: serving and reflecting a community while fostering empathy. So we’re blending the art of oral storytelling with the truthfulness and community-building that is at the heart of great journalism.

Listen to audio and see photos from our past Coloradoan Storytellers Project nights here.
