STORYOLY is Olympias premiere Story Slam event. Community members come together every month to share, compete and tell true stories based on a monthly theme. StoryOly aims to encourage and develop community engagement and connection through the medium of storytelling.|
The Theme for our July event is: Healing
When a STORYOLY event begins, storyteller hopefuls put their names in a hat. A half hour later, names are picked, and one by one, storytellers take the stage. The ten featured stories are scored by a team of judges selected from the audience. Each Story Slam generates a Story Slam winner. After ten slams, the winners face off in a Grand Slam Championships.
HOW TO PARTICIPATE: Compose your story. Practice so you can remember it without the benefits of paper. Then practice it so you can keep it down to 8 minutes.
Come to the Story Slam and put your name in the hat. If you are one of the lucky 10 picked, youll have eight minutes to woo the audience with tales of your on-theme escapades. Unpicked? Fear not, some variation of your theme will surely rise again. All stories have multiple themes and stretching them to fit can be fun and even bring out elements you hadnt recognized before.
Contestants are judged on sticking to the eight-minute time frame, sticking to the theme and having a well structured story.
