Art of the Story Festival Story Kickoff Slam

Saturday, April 21, 2018

The Art of the Story kickoff program is a Story Slam contest. This Slam is a competition within a set time limit, placing emphasis on a storyteller's content and performance. The 2018 contest features Maggie Lott, Kristin Olson-Huddle, Ellen Wolfson and John Wylder. Each story must be an original work. First-person, real-life adventures are expected. Fiction, folktale/myths are not allowed. The four tellers each have ten minutes to tell their story from memory. This Slam is judged by the audience. The winner receives a cash prize and the opportunity to tell a story at the Festival Finale on May 5 at the Sherwood Center for the Arts. Free and open to the public; no registration required.
