Madison Area Memoirists: Anybody up for “writing attack” on Mad Rollin’ Dolls?

Roller skates were a really big part of my childhood. At the rink, on the sidewalks, all around the town, skates were how I rolled.

One reverberation of that roller rumble and I’m back there again. A while back I got invited to go see a Mad Rollin Dolls bout and I was really captivated. If I could afford some emergency room visits I’d be strapping on my skates and pads and joining in for flat track roller derby done ironically but oh so competitively by some mighty brave women. These gals won’t let roller skating be consigned to childhood memories. If I can’t roll, at least I can write about it.

And now 4 free tickets have fallen into my lap! So here’s the challenge, Madison-area memoirists: who wants to join me as “writers-in-residence” at a Mad Rollin’ Dolls bout this spring? I’m looking for 3 people interested in attending on either April 4, April 25, or May 9. We’ll meet beforehand for some fun writing warm-ups while the squads warm their quads, then head to the Alliant Energy Center for total freakin’ immersion.

Your ticket is free, the only catch–I hope you’ll write about it for True Stories Well Told. Check out  madrollindolls.com and then email me at sarah.white@firstpersonprod.com to say “I’m in!”  and which dates work for you.

  1. I’m afraid I can’t enter your competition but remember roller skating as a kid and strapping a cushion to my backside!
