Keeping the tradition of gathering at the end of the day, enjoy your beverage of choice while partaking in the Northlands Story Slam.
Slam storytelling is the art of pouring your heart and soul out on stage and consenting to have five randomly-chosen audience members grade your performance on a scale of 1-10. The highest score at the end of the night is the winner! If that sounds scary, don’t worry – it’s all in good fun at the Northlands Story Slam.
The theme this year is “Against the Tide.” Anybody may tell a story that relates to the theme. Sign up when you register. Names will be chosen randomly. Stories must be 5 minutes or less, and told not read.
