Final Backyard Slam of 2020

This will be our final Backyard Edition story slam of 2020. Join us on October 17 at 4pm for stories around the fire pit. Like the last two backyard slams, we will keep participation limited in order to ensure everyone’s health, so if you want to tell a story or just listen in, get in touch. We’ll disclose the location once you do. The theme will be FIRST DATES.

Online Storytelling Workshop Starting October 18

Have you ever attended a story slam or listened to the Moth Radio Hour? Do you have a story you’d like to perform or just work on? Do you miss coming to On The Fly Story Slam at HiLo Catskill and want to stay connected to other storytellers until we are able to gather in public places again? Have you always wanted to explore storytelling, but never had the time? We’d love to have you!

In this workshop you will:

  • Be introduced to principles and strategies of live storytelling
  • Learn to turn your life experiences into a compelling story
  • Receive individual feedback and support on your story
  • Work with other storytellers to practice and improve your story
  • Perform a final 5-minute story

Listen to Stories from September’s Backyard Story Slam

It was another beautiful evening on Saturday with amazing stories and a socially spaced audience. We’re storing up the togetherness for the winter to come, but hope we can squeeze in another backyard slam around the fire pit next month. Info to come (but we’re thinking ‘first date’ stories, what could be spookier!). You can listen to a few of the stories from this past weekend below. The theme of the night was Reckoning.
