You’ve heard of poetry slams – competitive poetry events. Now, we’ve got one for first person, true stories – told live and without notes. Stories will all be 5 minutes or under and since this is Ko’s first Story Slam in Northampton, our theme is “FISH OUT OF WATER.”
Ko Festival Artistic Director Sabrina Hamilton invites you to “Tell us a story about a moment when you made a leap, crossed a bridge to a new setting, or felt like you were from Mars. Know a great raconteur? – Tell them about the event. There will be some pre-selected ringers, but this might just be your opportunity to take your place alongside them! We’ll also have a few last minute slots reserved for last minute sign-ups. If we have too many sign-ups, we’ll audition first lines of stories – and audience members will get to vote on which ones should be told in their entirety!”
Everyone should come prepared to listen, but you may want to come prepared to tell! All audience members get to vote. We’ll have free refreshments and PRIZES for Most Humorous, Most Moving, and Best Overall Story.
All tickets are $15. To reserve tickets, or inquire about being one of our pre-slotted story-tellers, email us at email@example.com. Or call 413.427.6147. Further information and non credit card reservations will are available at www.kofest.com. Cash or check ONLY at the door.
WE HAVE AN EXTREMELY LIMITED NUMBER OF SEATS — SO EARLY RESERVATIONS ARE ADVISED!
