“It’s all story” is the motto at Story Slam. And it seems we’re in line with the rest of the national arts scene.

Consider the article “Story-tellers Find Success on Stages Big and Small” in The New York Times on Aug. 16:

“… Lately, storytelling has exploded into a thriving genre all its own, a new avenue to prominence for writers and, increasingly, for actors and comedians. In a sense, storytelling has become the new stand-up — a way to be noticed by the literary agents, actors and directors who increasingly populate the audiences.”

We invite you to check out the Queen City’s own take on Story Slam, where poetry, theater, music — it’s all story.

Doors open @ 7 pm @ 1401 Central Ave. See link at top of page for $10 advance tickets. They’re $14 @ door.
