We Need Your Help So Philly Can Kick Storytelling Ass AGAIN!

Repping Philly, Michael McCarry

Silly Chicago! Even though we beat them at last year’s Philly vs. Chicago Slam at the Free Library Festival, they’re coming back for more pain. This time, they have invited First Person Arts to throwdown at the first-ever National StorySlam at the 2010 Chicago Tribune Printers Row Lit Fest on June 13th.


And we couldn’t be more excited to send recent Philly vs. DC winner Michael McCarry. Remember him? He’s the guy with the unbeatable mother (let’s just hope she isn’t telling stories for another city!). But we need your help to make this trip a reality!


We have to raise $600 for Mike’s airfare and other travel expenses by June 7th. That’s just three weeks away! Donate today and make this storyteller sojourn a reality! Donations of any size, starting with $5 will make a huge dent. DONATE HERE.
