Lancaster’s Very First Story Slam!
4th September 2009 Storey Creative Industries
Review by Mollie Baxter www.molliebaxter.com
Lancaster may be no stranger to Poetry Slams, but this is something a little bit different – a Story Slam, with 5 minutes to enthral the audience with your tales, and -to put a little extra adrenaline in the system – no recourse to scripts or prompt sheets allowed, only what may be contained on the back of a hand! This is not a reading, therefore, but a performance. Organised by professional story-teller Mary Lockwood, the Slam takes its inspiration from the successful Story Slams in the U.S. (go to Mary’s Slam blog at www.thestoryslam.co.uk if you’re interested in seeing some videos of overseas slammers, as well as for information about Mary’s project itself.)
