Black Fly Story Slams This Weekend

Black fly storySLAMThe Black Fly StorySLAM is a storytelling competition open to anyone with a five-minute story to share on the night’s theme, Lesson Learned.

How does it work? Storytellers put their names in a hat. One by one, names are picked. Storytellers take the stage and tell their best Lesson Learned story in five minutes. Two local judges will score the stories to select the Black Fly StorySLAM winners.

All stories have to be true and come from personal experience. No notes. There is no need to be a professional storyteller. Tips on shaping your story are can be found here and here.

The Black Fly StorySLAM is put together by NCPR and the Adirondack Center for Writing.
