Extend your holiday weekend into a StorySlam!

Tuesday the 27th is StorySlam! The theme will be “SECRETS,” and you have a nice long weekend to think it over…

DigPhilly will be there filming, so your story could be on TEEVEE! And our friends at Uwishunu will be liveblogging and YouTube-ing it as usual. Admission is $5-$10 (sliding scale)

This year’s winners so far–linked to videos of their stories:

January (Good Intentions) Kendra Gaeta

February (Brotherly Love/Sisterly Affection) Ingrid Wiese

March (The Road Not Taken) Sandy Beeches

April (The Awkward Pause) Kevin Lee

May (Secrets) Could YOU have what it takes?


Where: L’Etage at 6th and Bainbridge above Beau Monde (Enter from Bainbridge)
When: Tuesday, May 27th. Doors at 7:30 slam begins at 8:30
What: It’s a storytelling competition–sign up to tell your best 5 minute true story on the theme “Secrets.” If you’re chosen, and your story is rated highest by our panel of volunteer judges, you’re the winner and you’ll join us in November for the GRAND SLAM!
