What’s a StorySlam?

It’s an invitation to share five minutes of your life in a room full of people who appreciate a well-told tale. Audience storytellers take to the stage with real life stories on the theme of the night. Winners get $100 prize and the chance to complete in the season finale Grand Slam. Got five minutes? Come and lend an ear, or share an experience.
