Friday March 18, 9:15pm
Crowne Plaza, Warwick, Rhode Island
Free and Open to the Public!
Come and hear stories of people getting by during tough economic times. Or bring your own 5-minute personal story on the theme!
Participants will sign up before the slam starts by dropping
their name in the hat. Names will be pulled at random.
Storytellers get 5 minutes to tell their story. Plus a one-minute grace-period. Brevity is the soul of wit!
At the end of the night, the stories will be judged by applause-o-meter, and the winner will get a fabulous PRIZE!
The focus of the evening is getting together to tell good personal narratives. The guidelines and the "judging" are there to add spice. So come with a story and throw your name into the hat!
There will also be two slots for 1-minute, unjudged, "snapshot" or slice-of-life stories. Think of these as haiku stories - a quick-but-beautiful description of a situation, a brief hint of plot.
