Six Storytellers Slam the Airwaves!

Can’t get enough of our StorySlam winners? They’re back and ready to tell it on the air! WXPN kicks off a new season of LIVE at the Writers House tonight- Monday, September 27 at 7:00 PM. See six of Philly’s favorite storytellers live tonight in this free program! Featuring StorySlam champions, Angel Hogan, Mike McCarry, R. Eric Thomas, Leah Walton, Katonya Mosley, and Tre Rials, along with musical guest, Ross Bellenoit. The program will air on XPN, air date TBD but we’ll let you know as soon as we do.

LIVE at the Writers House is a collaboration between the Kelly Writers House and WXPN FM (88.5).

Majoun will be broadcasting six times annually between September and April.
