Verses Festival of Words‎ – Vancouver Story Slam Invitational Verses 2018 Edition

April 25 @ 6:00 pm - 8:45 pm

A special invitational edition of the Vancouver Story Slam storytelling show just for Verses Festival of Words!

Ten storytellers share original short stories in a competition for cash and prizes. 50 audience members will receive voting ballots to select the night’s winning storytellers.

Vancouver Story Slam is Canada’s longest-running live monthly storytelling competition. New participants are always welcome; profits from the monthly show go to the VSS annual writing scholarship. Produced by Susan Cormier and hosted by Bryant Ross.

This show features a mix of Story Slam tellers from the past year, as well as storytellers who are new to the Story Slam stage.

Wednesday, April 25 at 6:45. Doors at 6 pm.
$10 in advance; $12 at the door.
(Please note that the time is more than an hour earlier than a regular Story Slam show.)
