WHAT'S A GRAND SLAM?
A story slam is a live storytelling friendly competition similar to poetry slams. Storytellers have 10 to 12 minutes each to tell a TRUE personal story based on the THEME without the use of notes.
HOW IT WORKS
•Every story slam event has a HOST and a THEME.
•Audience members can prepare a story and enter their name in a hat or decide to sit back and listen.
There will be 3 guest judges and 3 audience members who will determine the winner of the slam. One Grand Slam winner will be announced at the end of the evening!
STORY SLAM RULES
•Each storyteller will have 10 minutes to tell their story. There will be a 2 minute grace period but that’s it.
•Tell us a story that has a conflict with a resolution or lesson.
•Know your beginning, middle and end. This will keep you on track. Content is important but be sure to edit.
•Be sure to connect the story to the prompt.
•Please no ranting, no preaching, no politicizing.
