The Southwest Florida Storytellers Project is a series of live storytelling nights in Fort Myers, Naples and surrounding cities of Southwest Florida. Our newsrooms at The News-Press and Naples Daily News curate and host nights of true, first-person stories from neighbors and notables. We're blending the art of oral storytelling with the truthfulness and community-building that is at the heart of great journalism.
