If you like telling stories, hearing stories, or just fun in general, you will definitely want to check out Harrisburg Story Slam presented by Whitaker Center and sponsored by Members 1st!

New for 2020, this event will be held virtually for the first few slams and hopefully by the end of the series, we can safely gather at Whitaker Center

Official Rules for the Harrisburg Story Slam:

·         Attendees must preregister for this event prior to 4pm the day of the event.  Attendees will receive a link to the virtual slam around 4pm the day of the event.   

·         Stories must fit into the theme of the night! See schedule below.

·         Stories should be true as you remember it.

·         Stories should be five minutes in length.

·         No notes, no props, no music.

·         Three judges from the community are selected in advance. Each storyteller receives a score on a scale of 1-10 for three different criteria: content, presentation, and adherence to the theme. The storyteller with the highest scores wins the night and is given a spot in November’s Grand Slam! 

·         If you win once, we invite you to return and compete; you just won't be awarded points.

·         Cost of ticket $8. 

·         When signing up to tell a story, storytellers are asked to sign a release stating they are okay with having the story posted on YouTube. Storytellers retain all rights to their stories. Questions? Email us (info@whtaker email).
