Welcome to the York Story Slam podcast, where we feature select stories from our monthly open mic storytelling events in York, Pennsylvania.
On May 19, eight storytellers shared their stories with our audience for our second virtual slam. Our theme for the evening was GROWING PAINS. We heard stories about the trials and tribulations of growing up, and about learning moments inside and outside of school.
In the end, first-time storyteller Rachel Palepale won with her story about lessons she took away from an abusive relationship.
Rachel earned a spot in our Grand Slam in November.
Next up is a story from Mina Edmondson, who shared a moving story about what happened on the day she wore her Easter outfit to school.
Our final story on this month’s podcast comes from David Smith. David shared his story of a time he was distracted in algebra class in seventh grade.
All the winners from this year’s open mic story slam events will return to compete for the title of Best Storyteller in York.
Updates on our events are available on our website, and while you’re there, you can sign up for our monthly newsletter. You can also follow us on twitter, Facebook, and watch videos of all the stories from our events on our YouTube channel.
