Story Slam is back at the Treehouse

“Seemed like a good idea at the time” will be the theme of the next Field’s End Story Slam.

Back by popular demand, the story slam will be held at the Treehouse Cafe at 7 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 10.

Storytellers are asked to share a personal, five-minute, true story that relates to the event’s theme: “Seemed like a good idea at the time.”

Audience members will judge by evaluating the story performance, story structure and creativity with the night’s theme. The event will be oral storytelling only, with no written notes or cheat sheets allowed.

Storytellers are encouraged to rehearse and time their piece for under five minutes.

The event is open to audience members and storytellers 21 or older. A $5 donation to Field’s End is appreciated and will be given to the Jack Olsen Memorial Tuition Assistance Fund for writers who need financial help for Field’s End class tuition.
