If it’s true, if it’s a story, and if it’s from your life, we want to hear from you! If you’re interested in submitting a story, first check that it fits our editorial guidelines and then send us a submission via our submissions page.

Tenx9 in Armagh, June 6th "City Life"

We’re delighted to have our first ever Tenx9 in Armagh on June 6th at 7.30pm in the Marketplace Theatre. The theme is ‘City Life’.

Moving to the city, leaving the city, your first experience in the city, your final experience in the city, an event that could only happen in this one particular city.

Tenx9 is an evening where nine people tell true stories from their own life. Each story is no longer than ten minutes. Tenx9 is looking for storytellers to submit a story on the theme of ‘City Life’. You can read your story, or tell your story, but every story needs to be submitted. While the event is in Armagh City, not every story needs to be about Armagh, so if you have a story about Dublin or Edinburgh or Ouagadougou, feel free to submit that to us too. But we are keen to have plenty of Armagh stories also.
