What is a story slam?
A story slam is a storytelling contest based on a theme. Stories must be true and about you. Those who with to tell a story will put their names in a hat.
When their name is called, they have five minutes to tell their story in front of everyone with no notes. Names are drawn up to 11:30, when we’ll vote on the best storyteller.
