Welcome to the York Story Slam podcast, where we feature select stories from our monthly open mic storytelling events in York, Pennsylvania.
In August, eight storytellers shared their stories with our audience at Holy Hound Taproom in downtown York.
Our theme for the evening was Brush With Fame. 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. One of our winners was Eileen Joyce, with her story about getting to know and love a new hometown.
Next up is our second winner, Melissa Snavely, who shared a story about auditioning for the lead in her high school musical.
Melissa also earned a spot in our Grand Slam in November. Our final story on this month’s podcast comes from Anthony Machinski. Anthony shared his story about an unexpected way to impress a first date.
All the winners from this year’s open mic story slam events will return to compete for the title of Best Storyteller in York.
Tickets for 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.
We hope to see you on stage soon! Thanks for listening.
