Storytellers are invited to tell about a time in their life when technology most helped them or hurt them. The story can involve any time that technology in any form either affected you positively or got in your way and slowed you down.
This a fun night of stories for the audience, and new participants are welcome to hop on-stage. The best advice is this: Know the first sentence of your story and know the last sentence of your story.
Storytellers register upon arrival. Names are drawn out of a hat to decide order of presentation. Stories should fit into the theme of the night. They should be true as you remember it and under five minutes in length. No notes, props or music is allowed.
Judges give each storyteller a score on a scale of 1-10 for three different criteria: content, presentation and time. The storyteller with the highest score wins a trophy and is given a spot in November’s Grand Slam.
More information on tickets and registration can be found at lehighvalleystoryslam.com; tickets can also be purchased at the door. Pre-registered storytellers are admitted at no charge.
