Major Manatee’s Travelling Story Sideshow is not your usual collection of writers reading their stories aloud. No tweed jackets, no poetry slams, no finger snaps daddy-o. Our emphasis is on entertaining the crowd, not ourselves. Are you interested in performing? Please visit the submissions page.
About our founder: Major Hubert Manatee (retired) is a gentleman, rake, cad, gadabout, rapscallion, ne’er do well, and cultural anthropologist. He travels the world gathering true stories so that you don’t have to. Those of us on the Major’s staff hope that he never discovers the internet, as then he will stop traveling and we’ll never get him out of the office.
