Monthly open mic story slam event. True stories based on that month’s theme.
Monthy Story Slam event. The theme for July is EMERGENCY!
York Story Slam is a monthly gathering where anyone can take a turn at the microphone and tell a true story based on that month’s theme.
Guests can come and simply listen to other people tell stories, or they can put their name into the hat for a chance to share a story according to the following rules:
Each storyteller is given scores based on content and presentation.
The storyteller with the top score at each event wins an exclusive York Story Slam journal set from Story Supply Co. and earns a spot in the Grand Slam event at the end of the season, when all the winners from that year return to vie for the title of York’s Best Storyteller.
Tickets are $8 when purchased in advance. Online ticket sales end at noon on the day of the event. If any tickets remain, they will be available at the door for $10. Our capacity is limited and our events typically sell out well in advance, so those who wish to attend are encouraged to purchase tickets when they go on sale.
