Our theme this month was Child's Play. We heard 15 stories - stories from childhood, stories about caring for children, lessons learned from children, and stories about things that should have been easy - child's play - and were not. Phil Broder won with his story about his mother's recent passing, and the memories and feelings her death has brought to mind.
Phil is pictured here with this month's host, Frank Melvin. Phil won an exclusive York Story Slam journal from our friends at Story Supply Co. and earned a spot in our Grand Slam in November.
And speaking of the Grand Slam, we proudly announced that this year's Grand Slam will once again be held in the beautiful Capitol Theatre, and our 2016 Grand Slam Champion Brad Jennings will host.
Tickets for our October story slam are on sale now. Our events usually sell out in advance, so get your tickets now! The theme is Fright Night. This will be the last regular-season story slam of the year, and we'll announce the theme for our Grand Slam at the end of the evening.
