A StorySLAM is a storytelling event, featuring true stories told live without notes. All students, faculty, administration, and housestaff from the School of Medicine are welcome to tell their story or to attend.
Check out videos from last year's StorySLAM here: [bit.ly/uncsomstoryslam2013].
This year, the theme will be "Idio-path: stories about personal journeys." These stories can be from any part of your life, preferably but not necessarily with some relation to medicine. The only requirements are that (1) the story is true, and (2) the story is your story. Stories should be 5-15 minutes long, and all volunteers will receive individual coaching on their stories.
The StorySLAM will take place on Monday, May 5, 7-9pm, at Linda's Downbar (203 E. Franklin). Story submissions will be accepted through April 11. Feel free to email me with any questions at [firstname.lastname@example.org].
