Sweet, but with a bitter aftertaste…What or WHO does that remind you of? We want to hear about it! Stories of pain and pleasure, surprising sweetnesses or the bitterness of your favorite ballads are all on point stories for the First Person Arts December ‘Bucket Slam’. For December the theme is…‘Bittersweet.’

NEW this season.  Send the first line of your story to for a chance to be guaranteed 1 of the first 4 spots on the lineup to tell your story live.  That first line should catch our attention, draw us in and connect your story to the theme of the night.

If selected, you will receive free admission to the Slam and early entry into the venue to save seats for your friends and family.  If you’re not selected, we’ll put your name into the bucket. You could still be selected to share your story of the burn!

Send the first line of your story to by November 15th  or come to the event and put your name in the bucket for the chance to tell your true, first person story on stage at World Cafe Live on December 13 (Doors at 6pm for an 8pm Show).  Get your tickets at

The last BucketSlam of the year from @FirstPersonArts is the last chance of the year to tell your true story on the theme of “Bittersweet” – the double-edged sword of missing, messing up or winning even though you lost. Share your story on stage at World Cafe Live.

When a stranger gets on stage you never quite know where it might go. Host Chris Lundy makes sure the laughs happen between the heartfelt, the absurd, and hilarious stories that are a part of this guaranteed good night out.

Volunteer on the night, or storytellers can get to the top of our ‘bucket list’ by messaging with the headline of their story!

If your name gets picked from the bucket you get 5 minutes on stage to share your truth in a safe space for all. Panel favorites get $100 dollars in gift cards and a slot in the GrandSlam event next year.
