Des Moines Storytellers Project: Love is hard. Finding love in 2019 is even harder
The Storytellers Project is a series of live storytelling events curated and hosted by the Des Moines Register. The Register’s journalists help community members to draw out authentic, personal experiences and hone them into engaging dialogue.
As the Beatles famously sang: "Love Is all you Need."
Well, when you're trying to navigate the complicated, tedious and sometimes outrageous world of romance in 2019, sometimes love isn't all you need.
But love doesn't have to describe just our romantic relationships — it can describe our relationships with our family members, pets, jobs and even ourselves.
For the next edition of the Des Moines Storytellers Project, we are exploring the wacky, zany and complicated theme of "Love in the Modern World." The Feb. 12 event will have you keeling over in laughter or feeling camaraderie despite the diverse experiences we all have when it comes to love.
We invite you to come and either share your own story or listen to people tell true, first-person, authentic stories that will open your minds and connect our community.

Become a teller
The Des Moines Storytellers Project strongly believes that everyone HAS a story and everyone CAN tell it. None of the storytellers who take our stage are professionals. They are your neighbors, friends or co-workers, and they are coached to tell by Register journalists.
