A Storyology 2017 Brisbane Special Event

Eleven journalists tell their best true stories, live on stage.

We’re kicking off Storyology with a night of wit, wisdom and spilled ink at the Brisbane Powerhouse on Aug. 24.

Great journalism leaps from the page to the stage. Hear tales of jungles, nuns, drugs, Afghanistan, race relations, backyard shenanigans, investigations, musicians, children’s choirs, fainting on live TV and face tattoos … plus a brilliant audience and a great party.
