You might be asking, WHAT IS A STORY SLAM?

photo 1-14A Story Slam is a competition where anyone can take the stage and tell a five minute story based on the theme of the night. No notes, no props, and no music is allowed. Just a storyteller at a mic. People tell “true as I remember it” stories, some are hilarious, others are sad, some are jaw-dropping. Storytellers sign a release so stories can be recorded and uploaded to our Youtube Channel and possibly be included in our podcast. Each month, one storyteller wins the story slam and is awarded a slot in the GRAND SLAM, which takes place in November. At the GRAND SLAM, the ten winning storytellers battle it out for the title of Best Storyteller in Delco!” Tickets are $8 (plus fee) by clicking here or $10 at the door.
