Our theme for the evening was Fright Night. We heard stories of frightening situations, near-death experiences, parents who traumatized their children with homemade Halloween costumes, and even one exorcism.
Chris Diaz won with his story about his church community's feelings about a video game.
Next up is Scott Fisher. Scott recalled a time when, as a teenager, he and his girlfriend got into a dangerous situation.
Our final story on this month’s podcast comes from Susan Crawford, who told us about one of the homemade costumes she made for her children.
This was the last open mic story slam of our season. All the winners from this year’s story slam events will return to compete in our Grand Slam in November for the title of Best Storyteller in York. Tickets for our events are available on our website, and while you’re there, you can sign up for our monthly newsletter. You can also follow us on Twitter, Facebook, and watch videos of all the stories from our events on our YouTube channel.
Our podcast is produced with support from Our York Media. They're all about thoughtful storytelling, so we couldn't imagine a better partner. Visit their website for stories about some of our neighbors.
We hope to see you on stage soon! Thanks for listening.
