Howl Story Slam returns for 8th season, March 27

2024 ACW Howl story slam
The Adirondack Center for Writing (ACW) and North Country Public Radio (NCPR) have announced the first five Howl Story Slams of the 2024 season. The first event is set for Wednesday, March 27, at 7 p.m. at Olive Ridley’s in Plattsburgh, NY. Additional story slams are scheduled at Morristown at the Iron Horse Grill on April 23, Upper Jay at the Upper Jay Art Center on May 16, Indian Lake at the Indian Lake Theater on June 21, and Saranac Lake at the Waterhole on July 9. The theme for these five slams is “Risky Business.”

More information for each event can be found on ACW’s events page at

Anyone can sign up to tell a story. Stories must be: true, under five minutes, adhere to the night’s theme, and told without notes. Storytellers are judged by a few audience members and a winner is announced at the end of each night. All of the 2024 winners will be invited to tell a story at the Grand Slam at the end of the year.

No tickets are needed; each slam is a suggested $10 donation which is split between ACW and NCPR, two North Country nonprofits dedicated to inspiring the love of storytelling.
