Story Slam #5 – “Childhood Memories”

Cousins.

Our fifth story-telling event will be held on Saturday, June 25th from 7 – 9pm at the 1911 Distillery in Lafayette.

The theme for the event, by popular request, will be “Childhood Memories.” The event is free and open to the public!

A story slam is a competition based on the art of storytelling, allowing folks to share their experiences by crafting stories within a set time limit. Story-tellers will write down their names and a title for their story. Judges will randomly pull story-tellers out of a hat, and one-by-one, they will take the mic (or the front seat) to tell their tale. If you don’t sign up when you arrive but feel inspired after hearing others, the more the merrier! Story slam hosts will judge each story, and the winners go home with a goody bag filled with local homemade and handmade treats.

The address is 4472 Route 20, Lafayette, NY. The building is on the north side of Route 20, and sits back off the road a bit.  Can’t wait to see you there!

Success!!

Our 3rd story slam event was, once again, a success.  I think we’re starting to get the hang of things, so next month we might try to move our event to the big city!  And by “big city” I mean Syracuse 😉

Thanks to everyone who came out for the night.  We appreciate the support and have very much enjoyed getting to know everyone and listening to your stories.

Stay tuned for our April event!
