Tell a Story about the Storyteller and Win a Ticket to the Grand Slam and BBQ!

By now of course you know that First Person Arts’ Summer Grand Slam is coming up on Saturday, July 24th at the Painted Bride Art Center, and that the pre-Slam BBQ is going to feature barbecue from Sweet Lucy’s, Herr’s potato chips, Narraganset beer and tastings of ROOT liqueur.  You can buy your tickets here.

Or do you want to try and get FREE TICKETS? Win our “Tell a Story About the Storyteller” competition and you’ll receive a free ticket to the Grand Slam and BBQ. Here’s how it works:

We want to hear from anyone and everyone that knows our contestants. Are you a Co-Worker? Best Friend? Second Cousin? Ex-lover? Or did you have a transcendent experience watching them tell a story at a Slam? We want your most joyful/hilarious/insane/petrifying story about our storyteller!

This contest is now closed. See who won here.

Click on any Storyteller below and post a remarkable (but true) story about him or her in the comments section of their page! It can be any ‘theme’ you want, it just needs to knock our socks off! On July 19th we’ll pick the best submissions and the winners each get one free ticket to the Summer Grand Slam and BBQ on July 24th.*

Here are the Storytellers competing this year. Lets see what you got!!
