Howl Story Slam returns live online

The Howl Story Slam is back with an evening of live stories told online. The team behind the Howl has worked to revamp the program as it is so important to hold space for stories in a time when we can’t physically be together. The beloved program will take place virtually for everyone to enjoy from home on December 18, 2020 at 7:00pm

Anyone is welcome to tell a true, five-minute story on the theme “Holidays: The good, the bad, the ugly” using no notes.

The first 15 storytellers to sign up will be included in the lineup. Registration required for storytellers and audience members, sign up here bit.ly/decvirtualhowl. Free to tell stories and to attend.

The Howl Story Slam team is a partnership between Adirondack Center for Writing and North Country Public Radio, two organizations that believe in the power of stories.
