Welcome to the York Story Slam podcast, where we feature select stories from our monthly open mic storytelling events in York, Pennsylvania.
On March 15, nine storytellers shared their stories with our audience for our virtual slam.
The theme for our March story slam was CLOSE CALL. We heard stories about missing the bus, escaping death, and a run-in with a gang.
In the end, our winner was first-time storyteller Helen Dempsey, with her story about getting off course during a Hash while living in France.
Helen earned a spot in our Grand Slam in November. Next up we have David Smith, who shared about his history as an unlucky person, and how his luck changed after receiving a leukemia diagnosis.
Our final story on this month’s podcast comes from another first-time storyteller, Amos Stoltzfus. Amos told us a story about the time his dog was attacked at the dog park.
All the winners from this year’s open mic story slam events will return to compete for the title of Best Storyteller in York.
We’ll host our first in-person story slam since the Before Times on Tuesday, April 19 in our new location. Updates on our events and tickets for purchase are available on our website, YorkStorySlam.com, and while you’re there, you can sign up for our monthly newsletter.
