Join us for Hood River’s first ever StorySlam! Experience an evening of short personal narratives told with flair and passion. Be brave and put your name in the hat for a chance to tell your own personal story on stage. We will draw up to 10 names from the hat and have local judges casting their votes. Tellers will be expected to tell a six-minute, true, personal story around the theme A THOUSAND WORDS in conjunction with our October Exhibition and programming, A Thousand Words: Visual Arts Responses to Literature.

Your story must a true personal narrative.
It must be told in six minutes or less.
