StorySlam Oakland is an open-mic and curated event for true, personal stories along a theme. Every third Thursday at Sweet Bar Bakery in Oakland. We feature 2 hand-selected storytellers, and as well as several more storytellers from the audience in the open-mic part of the show.
Sign up on the email list to get regular reminders of upcoming shows & themes.
Audience members are encouraged to participate! Just put your name in the hat to tell a true story from your life on the theme. Or just come and listen! We have informal judging and give out informal prizes to the best open-miker, and the best overall storyteller.
Open-mic tellers are chosen at random and get up to 5 minutes to tell their story. Featured storytellers get up to 10 minutes.
Rules: Stories must be true, about your own life, and touch on the theme in some way. A bell will sound when you've hit the time limit and then you have one minute to wrap it up.
Want to be a featured storyteller with your great story that's 8-10 minutes long? Pitch StorySlam Oakland.
