STORYSLAM - "In Transit" - live storytelling competition
This show sponsored by AC Transit! Theme: In Transit StorySlam Oakland is a live, true personal storytelling competition on a theme. Theme changes every month, check back here for updates. As the organizer, I encourage you to buy your ticket ahead of time on Eventbrite. Find it by searching StorySlam Oakland on, or check back here for updated ticket links. At StorySlam, come tell your true five-minute story, or just listen to others and enjoy the delicious seasonal cafe cuisine at Sweet Bar Bakery. Entry is $5-20 pay-what-you-can sliding scale at the door if you don't buy your ticket ahead of time. Beer & wine available inside. How it works: I'm Julie, the host. StorySlam Oakland is a curated and open-mic show, meaning there are storytellers I've selected as well as stories told by audience members. Put your name in the hat if you want a chance to tell your 5-min personal story on the theme. Names are chosen at random. We have informal judging and at the end of the night we give away prizes to the two top storytellers, one for the Best Open Mic storyteller and one for the Best Overall Storyteller. See you on the Third Thursday at Sweet Bar, Julie Soller, StorySlam Oakland organizer & emcee
