An Open Mic Opportunity at BCCE

Are you attending BCCE 2018? Aside from typical presentations and workshops, there are a variety of other events that are well worth considering. There are several Birds of a Feather lunches, Division of Chemical Education meetings and social events. I had some down time this week and used some of it to organize my schedule for the conference. While looking through the Birds of a Feather schedule, I was excited to see a new opportunity. Holly Walter Kerby and Maria Gallardo-Williams will be master of ceremonies of the premiere of "The Mole," a story event for and by chemical educators. They have designed the event to be similar to The Moth, a nationally recognized program for storytellers. The topic for the BCCE 2018 premiere is: "What I learned later that I wish I'd known earlier." Holly Walter Kerby tells me that they have a nice cross-section of storytellers, and they are hoping the session will be entertaining, moving, and instructive. They still need a few storytellers to round out the program. Of course, they also need an audience. The audience will have the opportunity to ask questions between stories.

If you are interested in filling one of the few spots they have left, act NOW. Stories should be 5-10 minutes. Sign up to share your hard-won wisdom by emailing a title, outline, and approximate length of your story to story masters Holly Walter Kerby ( or Maria Gallardo-Williams ( 

The event will be held at the Auditorium in McKenna Hall on the Notre Dame campus on Tuesday, July 31st from 5 - 6:30 pm.

I hope to see you there!
