Lancaster Story Slam


The Lancaster Story Slam is held right here at Tellus360 every 4th Tuesday of the month. Advance tickets can be ordered HERE.

If you have a story to tell, sign up upon arrival. We’ll draw ten names out of a hat and each storyteller takes the stage and tells their story. Stories should be true as you remember it and approximately five minutes long. Our three judges will choose a winning storyteller, who is awarded a slot in the year end Grand Slam where they will compete for the title of Best Storyteller in Lancaster. Check out the rules page for more info.

Of course, listeners are also wanted! If you have not attended a Story Slam, be prepared to be surprised  and inspired. One story may be hilarious, only to be followed by a story that is touching, breathtaking, or even heartbreaking. We never know what a storyteller will say when they take the mic, and that is part of the fun.

Advance tickets are $8 and available HERE. Tickets at the door are $10. We hope to see you there!

What is Story Slam?

A Story Slam is an event where anyone can take the stage and tell a story! The story should be loosely based on the theme of the night, be approximately five minutes long, and be true as you remember it! Three judges are chosen from the audience and each storyteller is given scores based on content and presentation. We don’t take the competition part too seriously, it’s all about sharing diverse stories.

Story Slams are held all over the world, mainly in cities such as New York, London, Brisbane, Philadelphia, Scranton, Baltimore, Washington DC, and even West Chester, PA. Now Story Slam is coming to Lancaster, PA!
