Story Slam


The Artists Hand!


Exploration & Experience

Kathleen Kase Burke

Have a story to tell? 



Every month starting the 2nd weekend in September The Artists Hand Gallery & Espresso Bar will host


The Old Saw Story Slam.


What's a Story Slam you ask? Well it's a laid-back story telling competition.

The criteria is simple,

  1. Prepare a story that fits a theme
  2. Tell it in 5 minutes
  3.  It is "true"
  4.  It has a beginning, middle & an end.  


Come in to The Artists Hand Gallery/Espresso bar on the 2nd Friday in September  (9/12/14), 6-8 and tell your story to our audience (made up of many other aspiring story tellers).  They vote anonymously and at the end of the night the winner gets a gift certificate for the espresso bar.


The theme for September is

"The First Day of School/Vacation Nightmares".


Get it together and plan on stopping in to tell your story.
