What’s a StorySlam? A StorySlam is more than a storytelling competition. It’s an invitation to share five minutes of your life in a room full of people who appreciate a well-told tale. Each night features a new theme, so the stories are always fresh and entertaining. Got five minutes? Come and lend an ear, or share an experience.

StorySlams take place on the second Monday of each month at World Cafe Live (3025 Walnut Street) and the fourth Tuesday of each month at L’Etage (6th & Bainbridge Streets).* Doors open at 7:30PM, and Slams begin at 8:30PM. StorySlams at World Cafe Live are all-ages events; Slams at L’Etage are 21+.

*Except for May and November when Grand Slams are held.

First Person Arts StorySlams are presented by Harmelin Media
