Our theme for the July Story Slam was Emergency! We heard stories about injuries and other medical emergencies, being trapped, overreacting, and even a couple of fires.
Michelle Macera won with her story about a mystery involving an intruder paying visits to her college apartment.
Next up is Phil Broder. Phil shared a story about a night he spent enduring intense pain.
Our final story on this month’s podcast comes from Lauren Hills, who told us about the cast of characters that lived in her Minneapolis apartment building.
All the winners from this year’s open mic story slam events will return to compete at 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.
