Old Saw Story Slam


A story slam is a storytelling competition with limited rules and room for a great deal of creativity. Storytelling is a large part of who we are and how we share experience. In a story slam folks tell a story within given parameters in a safe fun environment. The rules for The Old Saw Story Slam are as follows;

1. The story must be "true", (your experience)

2. It cannot be longer than 5 minutes

3. It must address a theme

4. It must have a beginning, a middle, and an end.

The Old Saw Story Slam happens the second Friday of the month here at The Artists Hand. To help you with planning the themes for the next 5 months are listed below along with the dates.

So, look over the themes and prepare your story, and we'll see the second Friday of each month for some entertaining life stories!

January 9 ~ "Baby It's Cold Outside!"

February 13 ~ "He Said/She Said"

March 13 ~ "Backstabbing Friends or Et tu Brute?"

April 3 ~ "Twitterpation & Taxation"

May 15~ "Mother!"
