    • Princes Wharf 1 Forecourt

    True, personal stories from your community on the theme of An Awesome Journey.  Come aboard the bus and loose yourself.

     

    What is a storySLAM? Ten talented tellers relate a true tale based around the theme "An awesome journey". This can be funny, sad, serious, hilarious, but it has to be true, told in 4-8 minutes, without notes and have a beginning, middle and end. It is a competition and there are prizes (as well as glory) to be won.

    Sounds like fun? Well come and join us on the bus in the forecourt to hear the tales. Or have you got a story to tell? Are you a fan of podcasts like The Moth and Story Club? Well here is your opportunity to tell your tale, you can still register at http://www.slt.org.au/festival_slam
