Brush with Fame

This month's theme was I'm Your Biggest Fan. We heard stories about trying to keep calm while meeting lifelong idols, family heroes, and getting recognized as a local celebrity. In the end we had a tie - Eileen Joyce, with her story about getting to know and love a new hometown, and Melissa Snavely, who shared a story about auditioning for the lead in her high school musical.

Eileen and Melissa are pictured here with this month's host, Carter Grimm. They each won an exclusive York Story Slam journal from our friends at Story Supply Co. and earned a spot in our Grand Slam in November.

Watch videos of all the stories from that night here.

Tickets for our September story slam are on sale now. Our events often sell out in advance, so get your tickets now! The theme is #adulting, and Matt McDunnell will be our host for the evening.
