Details:  The general public (21+) is invited to tell a personal true story on stage based on the monthly theme.  Each teller is rated by a group of 3 volunteer judges selected from the audience night of event.  The winner of each monthly slam wins a cash prize, StoryOly Tee Shirt and qualifies to participate in the StoryOly season finale, The Grand Slam which will take place in September 2022. Stories must be true, 8 minutes or less in duration.  Judges are asked to rate each teller on their ability to tell a good story. Did it have a beginning middle and end? Was it compelling? Did you want to know what happened next? They are asked to not judge the teller on their life choices, but merely on their ability to tell a good story.
