Delco Story Slam Takes Hiatus
While we had a fun season in 2015, but it’s time to consolidate. Delco Story Slam is taking a hiatus in 2016. If you are interested in telling stories at a Story Slam – or just going out to listen for an entertaining night of stories – we have some recommendations. Check out one of the following storytelling events in nearby venues.
West Chester Story Slam – held at SideBar in downtown West Chester on the second Tuesday night each month, tickets for this Story Slam often sell out days before the event. Learn more at wcstoryslam.
Rose Valley Concert Series – Professional storyteller Megan Hicks hosts storytelling shows at her home several months out of the year. Megan brings in storytellers from different parts of the country – and they are amazing. Email her if you’d like to be on her mailing list. Learn more at Megan’s website.
First Person Arts – Philadelphia’s original Story Slam, they hold two events each month, one at World Cafe Live and another at L’Etage. Learn more at First Person Arts.
StartUp StorySlam – Storytelling for Entrepreneurs – while this story slam is geared to those who are working in start-ups, it’s also turning into a motivational story slam for businesspeople to network and share the roller coaster ride of starting a business. Generally held at Benjamin’s Desk, a popular co-working venue on Rittenhouse Square, you can learn more at StartUp StorySlam.
Tell Me A Story – not a Story Slam, but an entertaining night of curated stories organized and hosted by popular storyteller Hillary Rea. Some events are held at Shot Tower Coffee in South Philly but other events are held at unique locations such as the creepy Mutter Museum. Learn more at Tell Me A Story’s Facebook page.
Lancaster Story Slam – A bit of a drive, but worth it to visit the hip city center of Lancaster, PA. A wide range of storytellers compete in this monthly story slam, which is held on the fourth Tuesday of the month at Tellus360. Learn more at Lancaster Story Slam.
Lehigh Valley Story Slam – another drive, but an intimate venue makes this good for first-time storytellers. It’s held at a whisky bar too, which means you can take a few sips of courage before taking the stage. Learn more at Lehigh Valley Story Slam.
Thanks for three fun seasons!
