Stories for Strangers


Calling himself “The Roving Typist”, C.D. Hermelin visits parks in New York City where he writes impromptu stories for strangers for a fee. Story patrons provide some ideas on what they’d like in a story and pay what they choose for the finished text.


You can find out more about “The Roving Typist” in the short film below. If you’d like your own story, and can’t visit Hermelin in NYC, you can visit his website and order your own short story.
