Notes for "Grimm and Twisted" submissions:
This project challenges tellers of traditional stories with the following guidelines in a monthly series of folk & fairy tale slams events on themes Slamming the Tradition - Six traditional storytelling events for adults.
Featured teller Jackson Gillman: As the Stand-up Chameleon, Jackson often enlists one of his many altered egos for his storytelling. Such is the case as Jackson embodies his Yiddish grandmother to twist “Jeck mit de Binn Stuck” and other classics.
Jackson Gillman has thrice been Teller-in-Residence at the International Storytelling Center and has been featured at many regional and national festivals. He runs Springboards for Stories workshops annually in the inspiring setting of Rudyard Kipling's historic VT home.
A bag of magic beans = 1st • A magic wishing stone = 2nd • A small bale of hay = 3rd
Additional prizes including free passes to story slams + mugs and T-shirts maybe added. More details to come.
