“Baggage” Slam Winner and Audience Favorite: Renee!

The videos are finished, and the audience votes are tabulated, and once again, the audience agreed with the judges!  The winner of the “Baggage” StorySlam was Renee with her metaphorical use of the term to describe a relationship that now teeters on the edge of. . .well. . .something exciting, no doubt!

Thanks Renee, and welcome to the Golden Ticket Society!

June is thick with StorySlams, so mark your calendar for the Special Event StorySlam at the Kimmel Center on June 20th, part of the Summer Solstice celebration. The theme is “The Great Outdoors” and it’s hosted by Philadelphia Magazine’s Victor Fiorillo. Three days later, on Tuesday the 23rd, we’ll have another StorySlam back at L’Etage, hosted by renowned Philadelphia adman Ed Tettemer, and the theme will be “Do It Yourself.”

See you there!
